Thread-topic: [Xen-devel] Re: [Xen-staging] [xen-3.1-testing] xend: Fix use ofPIFIsPhysical (takes no arguments).
I am running on a Unisys ES7000 with changeset 15006, and I still see
this problem.  I believe it only happens when I stop the server,
reconfigure the amount of host processors and RAM, and then reboot.

Okay, if you weren't changing the cards then it must have been the
previous bug mentioned by Pascal Bouchareine.

I've check in a fix for that too, cset 15002
