Hi Ian,

This issue happened on both 32bit (none pae) hypervisor and 32bit pae 
hypervisor. We didn't catch it in 32e (x86_64) hypervisor. 

It is to create 4 VMX at the same time. The command is like:
"xm create vmx1; xm create vmx2; xm create vmx3; xm create vmx4". 

Sometimes Xen0 won't hang. But the 4th VMX can not be created up. Xen0 
reported: "Error: Device 768 (vbd) could not be connected. Hotplug"

This issue only happened on IA32 hypervisor (None-PAE). PAE and 32e hypervisor 
are okay.
