Hello everybody

For network simulation purposes I am trying to run a Linux image with a PAX enabled grsec kernel on a Gentoo xen-3.1.1 with HVM. While the image boots flawlessly on real hardware the kernel does not really like the fully virtualized Xen/Qemu environment. It does not succeed to boot (for dmesg see attachment). I first tried with the grsec- patched sources but it is also the same failure with Gentoo's hardened-sources-2.6.20-r10. Is this a known problem? Is there a workaround? Will this work sooner or later?

I'm sorry for this maybe naive questions but I am new into this grsecurity domain.

Thanks for any helpful answer.
