Version: 0.97-20
Severity: normal


 update-grub creates entries with PAE hypervisors booting non-PAE
 kernels and vice-versa (it lists all combinations).

 I would have provided a patch except for two things:
 - it's not clear to me whether /var/lib/linux-image-$v/xen-versions
   should contain a x.y.z or x.y.z-pae for PAE Xen kernels (there's no
   sample kernel to look at with both Xen and PAE)
 - it seems to me that update-grub will also create entries for
   non-Debian kernels and non-Debian hypervisors, and it's not clear to
   me how to detect PAE Xen hypervisors in this case (looking at the
   name only seems fragile)
