Hey everyone,

I have been trying to make Xen-4.1.0 work on kernels mentioned in the subject, without much sucess. HVM guests are not affected, only PV.

Error that i see in dmesg on the domU:
XENBUS: Timeout connecting to device: device/vif/0 (state 1)

ifconfig -a on domU shows MAC address: 00:00:00:00:00:00

dom0 doesn't have any vif/tap interfaces assigned to domU when i do brctl show or ifconfig -a

I don't see any errors worth mentioning in /var/log/xen, except mybe these two:

/tmp/SBo/xen-4.1.0/tools/ioemu-qemu-xen/hw/xen_blktap.c:628: Init blktap pipes
Could not open /var/run/tap/qemu-read-2

Problem goes away when i boot (it is the last kernel that i have built with gentoo rebased patches).

If there is something i can do to help debug this please do let me know.

Best regards,
