Actually, while you're at it, could we make Xen aware of LOCALVERSION,
so you can 'make LOCALVERSION=_foo dist', and not only would you get
custom kernels that can co-exist with other kernels (as already
happens), but you also get xen-3.0-devel_foo.gz that can be installed
nicely without overwriting other Xen builds you have. That would have
made things much easier for me this week, and I suspect it would
continue to do so.

I suggest this would be additional to, and not replace, support for
