I think in future we will hold off big changes to the Linux repo coming up
to a release, and we will snap the Linux repo for a tarball when we do the
Xen release. So at least something reasonably stable is available for people
to build with new Xen, at little extra effort for us.

In this case I have tagged the current Linux repo tip as 'xen-3.2.0' and we
will a roll a tarball of that.
