RE: [Xen-devel] potentially nasty oops on startup

Ouch. Is this the unstable tree? Is it deterministic? How far through
the boot process does it happen? Could you try rolling the tree back a
couple of days and check it goes away.

It is the unstable tree, I'll try running an older kernel and
Xen to see if the bug goes away.

Almost all the core Xen developers are currently in San Francisco
attending OSDI, so I'm afraid bug fix response times might not be quite
as good as usual.

Cool.  I hope you're having a great time at OSDI.
Don't worry about fixing this bug in a hurry, there's
enough time later...
