Which kernel did you use?

I just tried with
http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/jeremy/xen.git ,
xen/stable-2.6.32.x, with some additional patches*, and it works for
me, so you should be able to try that.


*The additional patch is basically a diff between kernel and
kernel, which you can create yourself, or see
http://pastebin.com/306FFfhT . It should not matter for intel-agp.c
problem as the patch doesn't change it, and I was able to build it
successfully (I use CONFIG_AGP_INTEL=y).
