Re: Xen is a feature

I have the feeling part of the problem is that the changes needed by Xen
for X86 are:
- a bit on the intrusive side compared to other patches to be in X86
- but too little to make it an arch on it's own (resulting in a lot of code

I think it's some kind of special-case / sub-arch within X86, with which
the development of the kernel hasn't been confronted yet.

I must also add i'm looking forward to inclusion in mainline, and that KVM at the
moment isn't a real alternative to Xen for me.
