PPA description

This ppa contains packages built to support upgrading instance kernels on ec2.

To add UEC host support, add this ppa and apt-get upgrade. The relevant packages are eucalyptus, qemu-kvm, and seabios.
*Note* I do not intend to pursue SRU for UEC host support.

To add EC2 reboot support to an instance (support for pv-grub), add this ppa and install 'grub-legacy-ec2' and 'apt-get upgrade'.

The source for packages is available at
 * lp:~smoser/ubuntu/lucid/eucalyptus/lucid-kernel-upgrades
 * lp:~smoser/ubuntu/lucid/qemu-kvm/lucid-kernel-upgrades
 * lp:~smoser/ubuntu/lucid/seabios/lucid-kernel-upgrades

cloud-init and grub-pc changes are in lucid-updates as of 2010-12-13. Official released images 20101228 and later [1] can be booted with pv-grub kernels. The subsequent UEC images may have a pv-grub kernel by default.

Related bugs:
  * [FIXED] bug 682831 : some (early) console data is lost on lucid with plymouth
