There was some unification work in this area around the

that's what happened).
Yeah, I think it has been working properly for some since then, though I think Pasi has been reporting problems since 32-bit dom0 first booted.

Yep, I've had problems from the beginning.. dom0/hackery was working pretty OK for me before it was removed.. I could run and install new PV guests etc.

Sorry, perhaps I was too hasty in removing the branches. Though you still have references in your own git tree?

You still had problems with HIGHPTE in hackery? My suspicion is that we're seeing the same bug manifesting in a much more obvious way, since I'm seeing somewhat similar symptoms, even without HIGHPTE.

I also realized that my Xen doesn't have debug=y set, so I'm probably missing some information.

Hmm, good point. I don't have debug=y either..

That would be useful. It would be interesting to see if Xen complains about any stray pte writes.
