Hi All,
        These patches update the xm-test code to be more easily portable
to new architecture. This focus of this endeavor is PPC but I believe
that IA64 also benefits.

Patch summary:

 1: Instead of using a dated snapshot (which no longer exists)
    use buildroot-snapshot.

The last time I built a xm-test ramdisk, the buildroot-snapshot was broken, and I had to go back a few days to find a working one. I'm wary of using buildroot-snapshot for that reason. Does anyone work within the buildroot community? Perhaps we could persuade them to keep "released" versions around,
rather than just the expiring, daily snapshots?

If the Xen community will be "blessing" a known version perhaps we should keep it somewhere independent of the buildroot community? Maybe hang it off http://wiki.xensource.com/xenwiki/XmTest as an attachment?
