update as root user or try out the third and final test version of FC5 being
released in a short while and verify if the bugs are still present on the system
.Reopen or file new bug reports as appropriate after confirming the presence of

Actually getting around to testing this, the right thing does happen if you set
your hypervisor kernel as the default.  In that case, both the kernel options
and the hypervisor options are getting copied correctly.
