[Xen-devel] Re: PAE dom0 is broken with the default config

They are using the xen0 config for PAE testing. What config
do you use for your PAE testing?

The majority testing is done with the -xen kernel, which seems to boot
and run fine on all of our machines, including those with root fs on

It might be worth comparing the scsi/acpi/pci etc options closely
between the two different configs, and try a 'binary' chop to see which
are important.

Yes. There's obviously an underlying bug, but it'll probably be easier to track down if we know what config option triggers it.
