Re: [Xen-devel] Unable to handle kernel paging request at virtual addres

I pulled the latest unstable bits, compiled xen, xen0, xenU and tools

domain with "xm create vmid=1 -c", kernel panics. My fix at least
makes it work here. Hope this is helpful.

I don't want a patch in the tree until we understand why it fixes the problem. As far as I can see nothing depends on valid m2p entries before the domain boots, nor should rounding of mem_kb matter. Obviously one of these things *does* matter, because your patch fixes the crash. :-) But we should understand the bogus behaviour rather than obscure it.

This is all not helped by the fact that noone here in the lab can reproduce the problem. :-((
