I am doing some experimentation with xen and Ceph and have a problem
booting my guest when my disk = [] uses an alternate block script.
Installation from a .iso was ok since the boot device was a file but
trying to boot from the rbd neither the hvmbuilder or pygrub can
as they treat the first value after target= as the /dev node to try

Yes, this is known problem which I'm trying to solve with this


If these will apply on 4.2.1 then would you like any help testing these
patches? I can also try writing a block-rbd script with a similar
structure to the iscsi one that you propose in 10/10.

Haven't tried applying them to 4.2.1 but there hasn't been changes in
the device handling code since the release, so I would say that you
should be able to apply them without much problem.

If you prefer I can also publish the patches as a branch in my local git repo, so you can fetch them easily (that will be based on top of -unstable)

If this isn't too much effort for you then I can work (out how to work) with a git branch.
