Yes, I think that the best thing to do would be as Jimi suggests, and for us
to pick one known-good snapshot, and host it ourselves.  That way, the source
for the XenSource ramdisks will always be available and we don't have to rely
upon the upstream buildroot archive.

The next time I build a ramdisk I'll put the buildroot tar on
xm-test.xensource.com, and change the Makefile to refer to that instead.
