Re: Running NetBSD-current in PV mode under Xen

That was it, thanks to everybody.

sshd seems to work fine when the machine is in PV mode, so I guess
I'll answer to that effect to the pr.

So far xcp-ng has been working fine for the rather limited test cases
I have thrown on it, but combined with a self-built Xen Orchestra it
is a decent free fully functional virtualisation platform. A loss for
Citrix, methinks.
