I want to do a quite major upgrade of my xen host; i have done this a
few times before, but it dates back to long and for the last hour i've
been at a loss....

What I currently run:
xen_major              : 3
xen_minor              : 0
xen_extra              : .2-3
xen_caps               : xen-3.0-x86_32p
platform_params        : virt_start=0xf5800000
xen_changeset          : Thu Jun 29 10:51:49 2006 +0100 9762:1e225598ce82
cc_compiler            : gcc version 3.4.4 (Trustix)
cc_compile_by          : root
cc_compile_domain      : (none)
cc_compile_date        : Sat Aug  5 20:59:55 GMT 2006

The reasons for my update is getting rid of flacky file:/// backends
and missing marvell yukon+yukon2+via ACE drivers. And I got my fingers
crossed that block-attach during domU creation will be a bit faster,
too :)

I've checked out xen-3.1-testing.hg on my buildhost and prepared dom0
and domU kernels, also already tested the domU one with the current
dom0 version.

The tricky bits are:
- i have to make a custom kernel (done)
- i have to patch it before or after configuring to keep EVMS BBR
support alive (done)
- i have to update the "userland" bits like xm and such (not done)

I configured, built and installed with a different DESTDIR
make XEN_TARGET_X86_PAE=y  KERNELS="linux-2.6-xen0"  linux-2.6-xen-build
make XEN_TARGET_X86_PAE=y  KERNELS="linux-2.6-xen0"
DESTDIR=/usr/local/XenDistro/xen0_test_32p linux-2.6-xen-install

what I don't remember is how to properly rebuild the xen tools - or
are they actually just copied? Even then a command that follows
DESTDIR would save time; I assume it's really easy and I just don't
come up with it :(

Please help me with this :)
