sorry to be persistent, but the problem that pvops0 kernel 2.6.32.x

machines, see this mailing list) is not solved yet.
Shouldn't this be a great focus of debugging and fixing?
What is the point of having releases for 4.0.2 or 4.1 if I don't have a
dom0 kernel?
The last time I tried it was with snapshot 892d2f052e97.
can you try this simple patch please?

Yes, I can confirm that this patch seems to help. I tried snapshot ea954f6 (current commit as of now). With the patch it does boot and first runs of Xen VMs seem all OK. Without the patch it does not boot.

Is this the official fix? Any side-effects?
