I'll build a minimal config kernal and test it this evening.

2.6.10-xen0. Yes.  I'll send though the diff seperately.

IBM X336 with hardware scsi raid1. In colo with the only thing attached
being a spider web cable (*). I don't have figures for when it was in my
lab and attached to a keyboard.  Pretty plain basic system.

(*) Breaks out a keyboard, vga and mouse ports from a special plug this
series of 1U IBM x-servers have.  Nothing attached to it.
