patch-ak was missing the $NetBSD $ top line. Not sure why cvs didn't pick it
up, should be OK now.

I double checked: removed the xentools41 directory and then cvs update'd

Related question: is PV working?

Yes, but with xm only.

Out of curiosity, could you elaborate on what's not working with xl+PV?
(is it a NetBSD problem, what is needed to fix it, etc)

The domain creation hang with xl, I didn't debug it further at this

Retry with autoballooning disabled in xl.conf.

Will this condition break automatic startup of PV domains
(xendomains="...") ?

as long as the script uses xm and not xl, it should not.

Oh, another thing: I noticed the following:

# /etc/rc.d/xencommons stop
/etc/rc.d/xencommons: WARNING: $xend is not set properly - see rc.conf(5).
$xend is not enabled - see rc.conf(5).
Use the following if you wish to perform the operation:
   /etc/rc.d/xencommons onestop

Is this by design? I'm still getting up to speed with the 4.1
differences, but my impression so far is that xend is not required in
4.1 (unless using xm - which as you explained above is needed, for now)

Is that correct? Say whatever problem affecting xl+PV guests is fixed;
Would one still be required to run xend with 4.1?

these script will probably need more tuning.
