Default Uploading linux-2.6 2.6.37-1 to unstable

I intend to upload linux-2.6 and linux-kbuild-2.6 based on upstream
version 2.6.37, later this week. linux-latest-2.6 will also be
updated.

Note that the OpenVZ, VServer and Xen flavours have been dropped and
will not come back. OpenVZ and VServer users should migrate to LXC
(Linux containers, using the cgroups and namespace features). Xen
support in mainline Linux is improving and it should be usable as the
dom0 kernel soon.

AUFS will be included for use in Debian Live if there is a version
compatible with 2.6.37.

Ben.

Does this mean that it would be a good day to start testing the dom0
support of plain 2.6.37 to make sure regressions will be minimal? (I
am assuming 2.6.37 does support dom0 now).

The backend drivers have not yet been merged, so it's not yet very
useful as dom0.
