Great work Steve! Thank you! This was always a PITA when it came to upgrading. Will try and give it a test soon.

Hi all,  

kernel-xen-3.9.7-1 marks the first package with scripting to  
automatically configure Xen in /etc/grub.conf.  

We look through /etc/grub.conf to see if there is an existing xen.gz  
line - if so, we use the same line for the new kernel. If not, I use a  
semi-sane set of defaults.  

We look for the specific vmlinuz and initramfs lines, then substitute  
the text for kernel -> module and initrd -> module. This means the  
generated grub.conf stanza looks something like this:  

title Scientific Linux (3.9.7-1.el6xen.x86_64)  
root (hd0,0)  
kernel /xen.gz dom0_mem=1024M cpufreq=xen dom0_max_vcpus=1  
module /vmlinuz-3.9.7-1.el6xen.x86_64 ro  
root=/dev/vg_raid1/xenhost rd_LVM_LV=vg_raid1/xenhost  
rd_MD_UUID=afb92c19:b9b1e3ae:07af315d:738e38be rd_NO_LUKS rd_NO_DM  
LANG=en_US.UTF-8 SYSFONT=latarcyrheb-sun16 KEYBOARDTYPE=pc KEYTABLE=us  
crashmodule=auto quiet panic=5  
module /initramfs-3.9.7-1.el6xen.x86_64.img  

Testing is appreciated. You should check your grub.conf for correctness  
before rebooting.
