Thread-topic: [Xen-devel] What happened?
What's the possibility a merge would break something?  I had some severe
instability a few weeks back, middle of last week it was fine, then I
did an update after IA64 tree was merged and it started crashing.  I
have just started trying to figure out the problem, but I'm trying to
rule out the noticeable things first.

The other thing to watch out for is the history (hg history and web
interface) is ordered by the date the changeset was applied to the
repository in question rather than when it was first checked into a
repository (the latter being the date field in the history). Changesets
5792 to 5804 were made to the IA64 tree a while ago. They were merged
with the main tree on Friday which is why you see a break in the date
