xen-unstable will look at a URL derived from it's own parent to find the
Linux tree this means that for the ppc and ia64 trees it will currently
be looking on xenbits for /ext/linux-2.6.18-xen.hg for both archs, this
tree doesn't even exist and I don't think you'll want to share a Linux
If we define $(XEN_LINUX_ARCH) as "" in the $(XEN_TARGET_ARCH)==x86*
case and -$(XEN_TARGET_ARCH) in != x86 case. Mixing that into
XEN_LINUX_HGREPO would yield /ext/linux-2.6.18-xen-ia64.hg etc. Does
that seem OK to you?
Another option would be to move the ia64 and ppc trees into separate
subdirectories of /ext/. I'm open to other alternatives.
