pending ABI changes
 
Hi folks

There are two changes pending which changes the ABI of some images.

1. BLK_DEV_IDEACPI for i386
This changes a core IDE structure. I intend to ignore them because the
IDE modules don't really do hotplugging. It affects all i386 images.

2. The suse xen patch
It works now up to a level I consider this a valid option. It changes
the ABI of the image completely.

Thanks for this Bastian, I'm running it now in my domain 0, looks good!

FYI I filed #500175 with a patch to fix nvidia driver against this
kernel. I suspect we'll see a lot of dupes of that one, at least we did
in the past when this changed in the regular kernels.
