           Summary: Domain builder should deal with broken initrds
           Product: Xen
           Version: unstable
          Platform: x86
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P2
         Component: Tools
        AssignedTo: xen-bugs@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
        ReportedBy: aliguori@xxxxxxxxxx
                CC: hohnbaum@xxxxxxxxxx

SLES9's mkinitrd will generate junk after the gzip'd data.  This causes the
domain builder to abort.  I think this is a valid thing to do.

I'd like to wait and see if this is an issue for any other platform other than
SLES9.  I'm operating on the assumption that it's a bug in their mkinitrd.

The work-around is simply to decompress and recompress the initrd with gzip.
