           Summary: Hyperthreading enabled causes Xen 3.0 to be unstable
           Product: Xen
           Version: unstable
          Platform: x86
        OS/Version: Linux-2.6
            Status: NEW
          Severity: critical
          Priority: P2
         Component: Hypervisor
        AssignedTo: xen-bugs@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
        ReportedBy: ray_cole@xxxxxxx

Using pull from hg as of this morning (12/5/2005).

If I enable hyperthreading on my machine then Xen gets into trouble within
minutes of starting up user domains.  With hyperthreading disabled it ran for
several hours with no problem.

Machine is a Dell Optplex GX280 with 2G of memory.

I get the following on the screen when it hangs:
