Proposal for adding kernel <-> xen dependency



Hi,

Today I saw that installing "xen" does not automatically pull in
kernel-xen0.  Shouldn't that ideally be the case?

Furthermore, not any combination of kernel-xen0 and xen is valid,
AFAIK, so just "Requires: kernel-xen0" would not be good enough.

Proposal:

Use a pseudo-package "xen-kernel" for enforcing the dependency:

-  Add a "Provides: xen-kernel = 3.0.1" (or whatever the included
   Xen version is) to the kernel-xen0 package.

-  Add a "Requires: xen-kernel = 3.0.1" (or whatever the required
   kernel part is, maybe >= is ok too) to the xen package.

Does that sounds sensible?
Comments?
