[Xen-devel] XenCD xm save problem: solved by 2.0.4

  Jared> snapshot.

My sincere thanks to Paul Ionescu who pointed out that my 2.0.4 build
wasn't actually 2.0.4 but rather xeno-unstable.

After fixing this build bug and retrying the resulting XenCD inside
qemu, xm save/restore now works properly!  (Fresh out of the box (no
strace xfrd), to both hard disks and tmpfs).

I believe that now every recent report of xm save/restore actually
works under 2.0.4, while current xen-unstable installations are still
broken (perhaps in only some cases?)

Hopefully, this community testing provides the Xen team a more clear
problem report and points to xm save/restore reversion between 2.0.4
and current unstable.

My box is chugging away on building some new XenCD snapshots and the
resulting snapshot should be available for download in a few hours.
(If I remember, I'll report on xen-testing's save/restore
success/failure as well).

This issue is important enough for demo purposes that XenCD 1.0rc01 is
revoked as a release candidate, and I'll need to release a 1.0rc02
within a few days.
