Well ... the following:

[xxxxxxxx at xenmachine libvirt]# grep SIOCBRADDBR /usr/include/linux/ 
[xxxxxxxx at xenmachine libvirt]#

I think you expected at least something like that:

#define SIOCBRADDBR     0x89a0          /* create new bridge  
device     */

This line I grabbed from my non-xen-based laptop running on

Linux nonxenmachine 2.6.20-gentoo-r7 #3 PREEMPT Fri May 4 11:03:57  
CEST 2007 i686 Intel(R) Pentium(R) M processor 1500MHz GenuineIntel  

What does this mean? Can you give me a short explanation? Do I need  
to update my kernel? Is it possible to use a precompiled version of  
libvirt from a similar system?
