Sorry for the duplication of efforts. Now that the existing code is a bit more 
generic, I expect the SUSE specific changes to be much less painful.

I caught that one in my testing as well. Sorry about that.

Ok, I understand what is going on. In _inspect_linux_kernel, the version of 
Xen PV kernels is determined by the filename, such as 
vmlinuz-2.6.18-348.2.1.el5xen, which indeed can end in 'xen'. I'll likely have 
to also remove any '-xen' strings for the SUSE case, but I'll look into this a 
bit further.

Will do. Thanks again for the work here.
