I got it to boot as Dom0 with a Rawhide based live CD image on a USB stick with several kernel tracebacks. I have not managed to get it to boot on my main Fedora 10 system either dom0 or as an ordinary kernel (but nor does the the unaltered kernel - presumably there is some incompatibility between Fedora 10 systems and Fedora 11 kernels that I haven't spotted yet), so you use it very much at your own risk.

It turns out (probably due to an overlooked "hg update") that those were actually based on changeset 2336. I have replaced them with the files below which really are based on changeset 2342, which contains a fix to a significant bug and reduces the kernel tracebacks I see from 3 (ignoring duplication) to 2. It actually boots (single user) for me as dom0 on my Fedora 10 system, though X crashed when I tried to go multiuser, and there seem to be a long delay due to some ata problems during boot.
