Subject[PATCH 2/3] lguest: 2.6.21-mm1 update: lguest-magic-signature.patch
From
Date
paravirt_probe() and its infrastructure proved as popular as it was
pretty. In anticipation of its imminent demise, this switches lguest to
use a magic string to identify a different entry point.

This is not the long-term solution: that will take a new bootloader rev
and will hopefully be done in the next few months.
