Default BUG: rawhide installer does not autoload xenblk/xennet modules

Hello!

I just tried to install rawhide/development to a xen domU with virt-manager,
and it seems current kernel (or xen drivers?) has a bug that prevents
anaconda/installer from autoloading the needed drivers..

virt-install -n test -r 512 --vcpus=1 -f /dev/vg0/test_disk1 --vnc -p -b xenbr0
-l "http://mirror/fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/development/i386/os"

starts up the console/vnc window, boots up linux and the installer, lets me
choose language and keyboard type, and then says:

"No driver found"
"Unable to find any devices of the type needed for this installation type."
"Would you like to manually select your driver or use a driver disk?"

And at the moment anaconda is broken for manually picking drivers, so
installation doesn't work at all when using xen (this is a separate bug)

This could either be the xen kernel or the changes within anaconda to
stop using kudzu. Please file it in bugzilla so that it doesn't get
lost in the noise of the list.

Thanks!

xenblk/xennet don't export any aliases that would cause them to get loaded.
So they don't get loaded.

That would do it. Thus, file the bug against kernel-xen. They should
have modaliases so they can get loaded automatically
