[one-users] initrd issue

I'd like to report a problem that may be considered a bug in the Xen driver.
The kernel I'm using for domU doesn't require a ramdisk since I have
compiled the kernel with all necessary drivers. So I removed this part
from the vm template, to look like this:

OS = [
  kernel   = "/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.18-xenU",
  root     = "sda1" ]

However, ONE inserts a default value that points to an nonexistent
file. This causes trouble when booting the VM.
To experiment without a ramdisk I commented the following lines in XenDriver.cc

// if ( initrd.empty() )
// {
//   	get_default("OS","INITRD",initrd);
// }

and it worked fine.
