The directory 'unmodified_drivers', in Xen-4.0rc8, seems to still
requires a 2.6.18 XenLinux kernel to build. For instance, overrides.mk
still refers to $(objtree)/include/linux/autoconf.h, instead of
$(objtree)/include/generated/autoconf.h in recent kernels.

Is there any plan to update it to a more recent kernel, as xen 4.0 has
switched to a newer pvops tree ?
BOFH excuse #278:

The Dilithium Crystals need to be rotated.
