Did you have any success with the GPLPV drivers and save/restore/migrate

For the record of this email thread -- the issue does not seem to be
with Xen save/restore/migrate.  It works perfectly when using Xen
3.4.1-rc10 with a 32-bit HVM domU (Windows 2003 Server) on 64-bit dom0. 
The issue is definitely only shown after installing and booting with the
GPLPV drivers, version

I'll start a new thread about the GPLPV issue.
