Re: [Xen-devel] kernel Bug after upgrading to 3.0.2-2

As I understand it, this is only needed to be this large because xenlinux allocates an entire page for the pgd where 32 bytes would be sufficient (as is done in native Linux). Wouldn't it thus make more sense to work towards a solution where, like on native, the other possible pgdirs on the same page can actually get used. As allocation already goes through a constructor this wouldn't seem this hard. On the other hand, if it's not hard, you would probably have done it
already, so I guess I'm missing something here...

At the moment PAE page directories always need to be page-aligned. That's probably not a difficult restriction to lift though.
