Again, this doesn't appear to be backported to 3.4.x, however I note that
Red Hat claim to have fixed this in their kernel version. This is where I
get confused again. How can a hypervisor issue be fixed in the kernel??
Redhat bundles the hypervisor (xen.gz) as part of their kernel-xen
rpm, while xen rpm only contains the userland part. So if you have
three different versions of kernel-xen rpm installed, you'd have three
versions of hypervisors.

What we currently do is use CentOS's kernel-xen purely for the Linux Kernel, however we use the xen.gz (3.4.x) image from GitCo. Is this bad? It's been a very stable combination for us.

I take it this means, for my security concerns, that I have to rely on what has been backported to the 3.4.x branch in xenbits, as I'm not using Red Hat's backports?

Sorry that I'm a bit confused here
