Thread-topic: [Xen-devel] [RFC] New shadow paging code

I tried the patch on a 4-way x86_64 ES7000 32GB RAM with an x86_64

I found that I am still unable to bring up domains with pae=1. I have
attached the error that I am seeing (hvm_pae.txt)

I then tried bringing up as many x86_32 WinXP domains as possible. The
qemu-dm process associated with each domain takes up 50% CPU. So I am
unable to bring up more than 8 (2 * NR_CPUS) domains. 

Let me know if you need any more info.
