So do you mean that this is fundamental to a PV guest or just under these
Since I am able to run the following when booted into the same guest by
passing a kernel and ramdisk.

Sent a link in a previous private mail, let me know if there are any problems.

Nothing is added to dmesg or xm dmesg that I can see.
I did however notice some text fly by that I hadn't before.
it is below just in case it could be useful in debugging
when running the xm create -c guest1, I get:
Using config file "/etc/xen/guest1".
