It's a GPF [error_code=0000] at init_bsp_APIC+0x53 which is
   0xffff82d080428f86 <+64>:    je     0xffff82d080428fc9 <init_bsp_APIC+131>
   0xffff82d080428f88 <+66>:    or     $0xff,%al
   0xffff82d080428f8a <+68>:    test   %sil,%sil
   0xffff82d080428f8d <+71>:    je     0xffff82d080428fd8 <init_bsp_APIC+146>
   0xffff82d080428f8f <+73>:    mov    $0x80f,%ecx
   0xffff82d080428f94 <+78>:    mov    $0x0,%edx
   0xffff82d080428f99 <+83>:    wrmsr

RAX is 0x3ff

This is immediately after Xen prints "Switched to APIC driver x2apic_cluster"

I'm booting grub->xen.gz so -basevideo isn't directly applicable.  My
attempt at setting a boot entry failed, so I'll have to try that

Thanks for taking a look.
