Re: [Xen-devel] 4.2 unstable kernel restarting before booting OS kernel

Hi Ian-
noreboot prevented the reboot, but it has hung right after Xen blanked
the screen.  My USB serial port is about a half an hour away so I'll
get that later on and see if I can get any more info from its output.
Are there any kernel changes required when going from 4.1->4.2?
Should my kernel that works fine with 4.1 work with 4.2?  And
presumably since it has hung and the noreboot line was on the xen
kernel line, the problem exists in the xen kernel?
