[Pkg-xen-devel] xen package usability

Which Debian Xen packages are people using?  I recently tried 
xen-hypervisor-3.0-unstable-1-i386, both hg11292-2 and hg11561-1, and
they both fail to boot the 2.6.16 Xen kernel, rebooting before the
hypervisor boots the dom0 kernel.  They do boot the 2.6.17 kernel, but
trying to boot more than one domU kernel results in a kernel panic.

The only combination I could get working is xen-hypervisor-3.0-i386,
which has been removed, and linux-image-2.6.16-2-xen-686=2.6.16-17 as
the dom0 kernel.  Version 2.6.16-18 fails to boot.  2.6.17 does work as
a domU kernel.

Is there a combination of hypervisor and kernel in etch (or sid) that
actually work?
