Re: [Xen-devel] (XEN) HVM_PIT:missed ticks < 0

After yesterday's checkins to unstable, I can no longer boot an fully virtualized guest (Intel VT).  Here is an attempt at booting a RHEL4U2-32bit uniprocessor kernel guest.  The flood of '(XEN) HVM_PIT:missed ticks < 0' messages actually occur before getting to the guest's grub menu so the guest should not matter.

I think this has started since Edwin Zhai's PIT emulation changes. I applied a further patch from him to quieten down debug output for SMP guests, but if those messages are coming out that early for you then it looks like maybe the patch will only hide the underlying problem.
