Description Stephen Tweedie 2006-10-27 09:46:11 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #212351 +++

Description of problem:

Why do we have so many places where xen can write to on the /var partition.  
Please change this to /var/lib/xen/dump for some consistency and to make writing
SELinux policy easier.  xen can already write to /var/lib/xen and its
subdirectories in selinux-policy but is not allowed to write to /var/xen/dump.
