My hardware is: Supermicro X8SIL-F, Xeon X3450, Adaptec 5405, 8/16 GB
registered ECC DDR3 RAM.
Mainboard: Supermicro X8SIL-F
CPU: Intel Xeon 4-Code L3426 1,86Ghz 8MB 2.5GT/s
RAM: 1 GB ECC Registered DDR RAM (tested with memtest86+)
PCI: 1x Intel PRO/1000 PT Quad Port Server Netzwerkkarte
HD: Two SATA disks WDC WD1601ABYS-01C0A0
Misc: Remote-Management-Card (over LAN)
Quite similar...

Indeed. This strengthens my presumption that Xen has a severe problem on this platform (that is Intel 3420 [Ibex Peak] and 1156 "Lynnfield" CPUs).

Please try my workaround patch at http://lists.xensource.com/archives/html/xen-devel/2010-09/msg00556.html

Uptime is now 160 hours with this patch on my machine.
