No luck, I already tried it dozens of times with different options,
always from a clean source tree (i.e. freshly untarred and then patched,
so there is no debian/ directory). The problem seems to be that once Xen
is enabled the bzImage target doesn't work (and neither does zImage when
using the --zimage option), but this target is called by make-kpkg. I
also tried using the --arch=xen option (it was mentioned on the Xen
mailing list IIRC), but this results in some "unary operator expected"
messages, similar to those in bug #446879 (which is closed). I tried
setting --arch and --subarch to different values, IIRC this solved some
problems with Xen kernels some time ago. Well, it doesn't anymore
Manoj, should I file a bug report for this or is there something else I
can try first?
