And it would seem there are some issues with it -- as least as far as
VMware is concerned:
(At least per that discussion -- see towards the end)
Sounds promising though once they get it right.
Ah, hrm, didn't know that. I know the initial version in -53 had some issues,
which were supposed to be remedied in -58, but I know the focus w/that patch
set has been fully virt xen guests, not vmware. The person who's been working
on it lately happens to sit right across the aisle from me in the office,
I'll ask him if he's aware of the issues on vmware... :)
