The standard dom0 kernel that comes with Xen is 2.6.18. The 2.6.18
kernel was released nearly two years ago, and I wondered if it would be
possible to upgrade it to a more recent kernel version.

>From my personal perspective this causes me a number of problems due to
out of date drivers not supporting new hardware and a number of other
people are having problems too.

Are there any plans to upgrade the standard dom0 kernel in xen, or get
the dom0 support included in the mainline kernel release as with the
domU support?
