Sorry for that. 
Yes, this patch will fix also RHEL5.2 because the base is 3.1.2.

The bug may be occurred by changing __XEN_VIRT_START.

So we may be able to fix it by changing DIRECTMAP_VIRT_START.

I didn't have x86_64 system.
I'll setup x86_64 system, and try to investigate it next week.

Best Regards,
