+Xen Patches README
+------------------
+
+These patches are intended to be stacked on top of genpatches-base.
+
+Many of the patches included here are swiped from various sources which
+use their own four digit patch numbering scheme, so we are stuck with five
+digits to indiciate the source for easier tracking and re-syncing.
+
+Numbering
+---------
+
+0xxxx Gentoo, not related to Xen. (in case we pull something from extras)
+1xxxx XenSource, upstream Xen patch for 2.6.18
+2xxxx Redhat, we use their Xen patch for >=2.6.20
+3xxxx Debian, we use their security fixes for 2.6.18
+5xxxx Gentoo, Xen and other fixes for Redhat and/or Debian patches.
+
+Patches
+-------
+
+01006_linux-2.6.21.7.patch
+ 2.6.21.6 -> 2.6.21.7 since genpatches stops at 2.6.21.6
+
+20950_linux-2.6.21.7-xen-3.1.0.patch
+ Main Xen patch.
+
+20xxx-?
+ Various bug-fix patches from Redhat.
+
+30037_amd64-zero-extend-32bit-ptrace-xen.patch
+ [SECURITY] Zero extend all registers after ptrace in 32-bit entry path
+ (Xen).
+ See CVE-2007-4573
+
+40001_i386-fix-xen_l1_entry_update-for-highptes.patch
+ Fix for kernels compiled with CONFIG_HIGHPTE.
+ Pulled from linux-2.6.18-xen.hg, changeset e79729740288.
+
+50001_make-install.patch
+ Handle make install in a semi-sane way that plays nice with
+ split domU/dom0 kernels.
+
+50002_always-enable-xen-genapic.patch
+ Compile fix for non-SMP (UP) kernels. Since UP support is broken in
+ upstream Xen I'm not sure if I trust it or not. :-P
+
+50003_console-tty-fix.patch
+ Steal tty1-63 as the upstream Xen release does so people don't get
+ any supprises. Redhat switched to using the special Xen tty device.
+
+50004_quirks-no-smp-fix.patch
+ Another compile fix for non-SMP (UP) kernels.
+
+50006_pgetable-build-fix.patch
+ Fix a function re-definition error when PAE is not enabled.
+
+50008_reenable-tls-warning.patch
+ Issue only one big fat tls warning as upstream xen does.
+
+50009_gentooify-tls-warning.patch
+ Change tls warning instructions to apply directly to Gentoo.
+
+50010_remove-pte_offset_map-redefinition.patch
+ Remove some apparently bogus code that was added in the 2.6.21 rebase.
