I will try get boot logs ASAP, however i guess netconsole is a better option.

Ok, I think I am not clearly spelling out the problem.

1. Xen with Linux on AMD64 hardware. OS: Ubuntu Jaunty.
Everything is working fine.
2. Xen with Linux on *Same* AMD64 hardware. OS: Ubuntu
Karmic. Boot process fails with error Waiting for filesystem

Difference between 1 and 2 are *only* OS. Nothing else same
configuration, same Hardware, same Kernel (however i didn't check with
particular revision).

Why problem exist, it could be GCC and Make new version??? or ???
