Here are three small patches that I have applied to the Fedora xen builds and I think are are suitable for xen-4.1.0.

The first patch fixes an anomaly in /etc/xen/scripts/network-route. Currently this script contains
ie. netdev is set to eth${vifnum} by default. Unfortunately vifnum is not set anywhere in the xen code so the default is actually the broken "eth". The patch changes the default to eth0 (which is what the comment at the top of the file says it should be).

The next patch updates a comment about NetworkManager not supporting bridging in Fedora 11 to refer instead to Fedora 14.

The final patch solve a build problem in Fedora rawhide, where rpm (4.9.0) doesn't automatically supply a "provides" entry for a library unless it is executable. This patch makes the libvhd and libblktap library files executable (and consistent with the other libraries in xen) so that rpm generates the right "provides" entries and therefore does the right thing when resolving package dependencies.
All the patches are
