I just wanted to confirm that pnpacpi=off solves my problem and give me full access over the serial console.

Should this get an issue in the bugtracker?

Yes, it's probably a good thing to gather all this stuff in one place. By the way, I have some fixes already for the IO-APIC checking routine that I mentioned. We're just going to give it a shakedown in Cambridge before putting it in the public repository.

I can confirm that my patch at least fixes the pnpacpi problem that you've been seeing. I've also enabled CONFIG_PNP_ACPI by default in our -xen0 and -xen defconfig files, so we should get wider feedback on issues relating to that config option now.

Great, I am going to pull from xen-unstable after the weekend and test the changes.

Thanks to Don and Stephen for the "pnpacpi=off" hint.
