3.4.3-rc6 is now tagged in

I hope that this will be the final RC before the 3.4.3 release.
Please test!

I have another issue, though I am not sure if it is a kernel issue or
xen. On an i686 machine I get the early crash below with a pvops
kernel under a xen 3.4.3-rc6 hypervisor. The same machine will boot
with a xen 4.0.0 hypervisor.

What kernel version is it?  2.6.31.x should work with a pre-3.4.3 Xen
(and post, of course).  I wouldn't expect 2.6.32.x kernel to work *at
all* on a pre-3.4.3 Xen (well, you'd get some boot messages, but no
device interrupts would work).

It was from stable-2.6.32.x circa 10th April. However I have lost the debuginfo rpm for that kernel, so I will try again with a more up-to-date kernel tomorrow.
