Hi there!

Upgrading from Lenny to Squeeze left my box with xen-hypervisor-3.2-1-amd64
installed, and I had to "apt-get install xen-hypervisor-4.0-amd64" manually
to have it installed after a dist-upgrade. This for sure, isn't the expected

Also, after the dist-upgrade, I did:
apt-get install xen-linux-system-2.6.32-5-xen-amd

because it wasn't installed either. Surprisingly, instead of installing the
4.0 hypervisor, dependencies were satisfied, and I had both the
xen-linux-system-2.6.26-2-xen-amd64 and xen-linux-system-2.6.32-5-xen-amd64
left installed on my server. I believe xen-linux-system-2.6.32-5-xen-amd64
should depend on xen-hypervisor-4.0-amd64 just xen-hypervisor-amd64 (and it
should be the same for the i686 flavor).

I'd be happy to provide patches if needed, but it should be trivial
dependency tweaks.
