[Xen-devel] problems with latest unstable

I have a dual-processor Opteron 242 with 8GB of RAM running 32-bit
Fedora Core 1 (yes that means that 4GB is unused). I installed the
latest unstable on it last night.

I'm not sure what was happening because as currently configured it
doesn't print anything past:
(XEN) Device eth0 opened and ready for use.
(XEN) Xen trace buffers: initialised
(XEN) Xen-ELF header found: 'GUEST_OS=linux,GUEST_VER=2.4,XEN_VER=1.3'

input to Xen).
(XEN) Give DOM0 read access to all PCI devices
(XEN) tg3: eth0: Link is up at 1000 Mbps, full duplex.
(XEN) tg3: eth0: Flow control is off for TX and off for RX.

'ping' indicated that it would come up for about 20 seconds and then
reboot. I enabled "debug ?= y" in Rules.mk and now it more or less
works :-O. One interesting thing that is probably worth noting is that
every time I type 'ls', I get the following on the console:

Am I objdump'ing the wrong thing? Is this innocuous?
