Has anyone had any luck getting the PV-on-HVM drivers to build against
ubuntu? I haven't been able to get them to build on any version I have
tried (though I am using 9.04 now)

Against xen-unstable, I am getting:

make -C /lib/modules/2.6.28-13-generic/build M=$PWD modules
make: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.28-13-generic'
In file included
include/xen/interface/memory.h:32: error: expected
specifier-qualifier-list before ‘GUEST_HANDLE’
include/xen/interface/memory.h:53: warning: data definition has no type
or storage class
include/xen/interface/memory.h:53: warning: type defaults to ‘int’ in
include/xen/interface/memory.h:53: warning: parameter names (without
types) in function declaration
include/xen/interface/memory.h:89: error: expected
specifier-qualifier-list before ‘GUEST_HANDLE

The steps I take to set this up are:

hg clone http://xenbits.xen.org/xen-unstable.hg
cd xen-unstable.hg
hg clone http://xenbits.xen.org/linux-2.6.18-xen.hg
cd unmodified_drivers/linux-2.6
make -C /lib/modules/2.6.28-13-generic/build M=$PWD modules

Interestingly, I get the same errors using a 3.3 xen tree...so I'm
thinking that its some incompatibility with Ubuntu - though I'm not sure
where to start looking.

Has anyone else run into this?
