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.

Thanks! I had missed that patch when updating to that changeset.

'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.

I think "make mkpatches" is correct, but I missed the additional patch. To use the patch from mkpatches and apply them to a vanilla kernel, one also needs to apply all patches from patches/linux-2.6.16. "make mkpatches" creates diffs between vanilla+patches/linux-2.6.16 and xenified+patches/linux-2.6.16).
