I'd go for /usr/lib/xen/bin

It would be good to do an audit of everything we install. I bet there's
random crap in tools/misc that aren't really user tools and shouldn't be
going in /usr/bin/
Ok, I'll look into it.

I've not been able to reproduce it. I had 50 domains running all cat'ing /dev/urandom and I was able to input/output large amounts of data without corruption to another domain.

Interesting. I've a T42 laptop runing a CentOS4 dom0 that it happens
frequently on, but I haven't seen it on other machines..
Sorry, I wasn't clear. I haven't been able to reproduce it with the consoled code. It happens quite frequently for me under the old Xend code.

With that said though, I'm still not convinced it's fixed completely because I don't think xcs buffers everything correctly. The new console drivers should do the trick though since we won't need to go through xcs.

Yep, hopefully.
