Thanks for all the info Pasi, I've been trying to repro but not
successfully. I setup an environment similar to yours (32p h/v and
kernel, ~512M dom0 RAM, swap) and managed most of an allmodconfig build
before I ran out of RAM trying to link the final vmlinux.

I haven't yet tried different compiler versions, I'm using 4.1.2.

Is it always kswap<N> which has the issues? (subsequent traces seem to
be from the softlockup caused by the original failure, not repeated
failures). Could you perhaps try reproing with swap disabled?

Have you ever tried with a more recent hypervisor? I'm using
xen-unstable, I guess I should rollback to something based on the FC11
RPMs and try again.
