RE: [Xen-devel] xen brings machine in a boot loop. Serial console output attached.

OK, I think the mystery is solved: I was mislead by the MHz of the CPU;
233 Mhz, I looked it up a intel cpu product table and concluded that it
must be a Pentium Pro. But after looking a bit more carefully it seems
to be a Pentium MMX at 233 Mhz, and that is a P5 class. Pardon me for
this mistake.
Lukily there is always something good in a bad experience, I learned a
lot about serial consoles...

hmm pentium does support 4mb pages, BUT, i'm not sure about cmove (I think it was introduced in Pentium Pro), apply folllowing patch and see if it helps
