Do you know if this will be fixed in the Xen 3.4.x series as well? In the 3.4.x ioemu-remote qemu code and the xen kernel?

I ask because this is an issue for me on RHEL5 domU's which are paravirtualized. Using Xen 3.4.3 w/ Xen kernel and I'm not yet ready to switch production clusters to 4.0.x.

RHEL/CentOS5 deliberately avoids using the absolute pointer mode for reasons I don't understand, so it is broken as expected.


Ahh yes, but thats if you're using the RHEL/CentOS Xen kernel. I'm not using a RHEL kernel... instead I'm using linux-2.6.18-xen.hg, but still the issue persists on RHEL5 domU's.
