thank you for your answer.
I wonder if it is a then a problem with the git kernel.
It seems only to occur if it is running under Xen (4). If I boot the
kernel on bare metal, anythig works fine. As an additional info, under
kernel 126.96.36.199 (formerly taken from git) under xen 3.4.0 (which is then
not a pv_ops kernel) all works fine, too.
So my question would be, how to get the issue solved? Do you have any Ideas?
