Hi all,

  With help from others, I've been able to get Olaf's patch for enabling
MTUs >1500 for vifX.y and tapZ devices working. I've been able to boot
dom0, launch domU and live-migrate without having the bridge's MTU
degrade at any time.

  Would the Xen RPM maintainers (and others) mind taking a look at the
following patches?

Kernel part:

Scripts part:

  I've tested these on systems with stock MTUs of 1500 and they didn't
cause me any troubles.

  If they can be tested and/or signed off on for the next round of RPMs,
I'd be very grateful. :)
