Thanks for your help looking into this.  Just to clarify, you're running
squeeze in HVM mode (not PV mode)?

Yes, that's correct.

I am testing credit2 on a dual Xeon L5640 machine. I have an HVM Debian
Squeeze domU that reliably leads to a panic when it's run with the
credit2 scheduler, but not with credit.

The reproduction steps on this machine are simple:

1. Fully boot up the machine.
2. Enter commands that cause dom0 to use 100% CPU. For instance:

screen -AmdS burn1 perl -e 'while(1) {}'
screen -AmdS burn2 perl -e 'while(1) {}'
screen -AmdS burn3 perl -e 'while(1) {}'
screen -AmdS burn4 perl -e 'while(1) {}'

3. Start up the prepared Squeeze domU (which is a stock install), with
"xm" ("xl" doesn't work with debug=y because of a spurious assert, but
has the same problem with debug=n):

cd /servers/customers
xm create testvds4.cfg

The serial console then shows this:
