Greetings Xen Users,

I am trying to bring up xen-4.0.1-0.1.rc4.fc13 on an up to date FC 13 Dell 
Precision 690. For dom0, I am using the PVOPS kernel. Xen boots and 
the kernel boots until it reaches a point where KSM fails (as it should, since 
KSM is compiled out) but hangs, because it cannot find 
/sys/kernel/mm/ksm/sleep_millisecs and friends. I have booted the kernel on 
bare metal (KSM failed but did not hang the boot) and used chkconfig to turn 
KSM off. After the KSM service was configured off, I could boot the kernel on 
bare metal with no errors. However, even though I had turned the service off, 
when booting on Xen, KSM still hangs.

Any  suggestions on how to get this kernel to quit trying to use KSM, when 
booting on Xen?


What is the formal meaning of the one-line program
#include "/dev/tty"
