That is from linux with xen patched into the kernel from "make mkpatches". I can supply the kernel config as well as my kernel source RPM to recreate the problem, if that helps.

You're missing the extra patch in file patches/linux-2.6.16/xenoprof-generic.patch.

'make mkpatches' should be incorporating the extra patches from patches/linux-2.6.16 -- if it isn't then it needs fixing to do so.
