Re: [Libguestfs] [PATCH 0/4] virt-v2v: Convert RedHat.pm to Linux.pm

Thanks, Mike. ACK to all of these, and pushed.

As it happens, I'd already started breaking some of this stuff out
myself when I found this patchset :/ Rather than redo it, I've kept what
I'd already done and rebased on top of it.

I also did some testing and fixed a couple of bugs:

"/files$grub->{grub_conf}*/kernel/root" should have been "/files
$grub->{grub_conf}/*/kernel/root" in _remap_block_devices.

It turns out that the release suffix used by RHEL 4 and 5 really is
'xen', not '-xen'. Note that this is the release, not the package name,
which is what confused me when I originally reviewed it. I've removed
this change.

Can you please pull the latest from git and rebase any future patches on
top of that? Please be careful not to reintroduce the '-xen' change!
I've accidentally done that at least once whilst working on this
