I just tried latest rebase/master (2.6.31-rc1) on Xen 3.4.0.

Seems to crash during dom0 kernel startup:

Checking if this processor honours the WP bit even in supervisor mode...
BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at (null)
IP: [<c058d0e7>] xen_evtchn_do_upcall+0xcc/0x13f
*pdpt = 000000003d272001 
Thread overran stack, or stack corrupted
Oops: 0000 [#1] SMP 

It's 32bit PAE like usual..

My previous xen-tip/next 2.6.30-rc6-tip booted ok.
