If you have a clone of a git tree then you will have been initially
setup with a local branch tracking the remote default branch (which in
the case of xen.git is presumably xen/stable-2.6.32.x).

If you want to create or checkout a local branch you can use "git
branch" and "git checkout" respectively. As a shortcut you can do the
initial create+checkout in one step with:
        git checkout -b <local-branch-name> --track xen/next-2.6.37

(or maybe origin/xen/next-2.6.37 -- use "git branch -r" to list remote
branches and pick the correct one)
