summary:     Avoid div-by-zero crash if vmx guest specifies bogus timer

Distribution: FC4
HW: VT-enabled, SMP, 1 HD, 2Gbit adaptors, 8GB RAM
ARCH: x86_64
Kernel config:  default
Grub entry:

title Xen 3.0 unstable / XenLinux 2.6
        root (hd0,0)
        kernel /boot/xen-3.0.gz dom0_mem=1048576 com1=115200,8n1 noapic acpi=off
       module /boot/vmlinuz-2.6-xen0 root=/dev/sda1 console=ttyS0,115200
console=tty0 acpi=off
        module /boot/initrd-

Problem Details:

When trying to boot with the 8GB of Ram that is installed in the VT-enabled
system, Xen hangs during the boot process and the serial console does not
specify anything that points to the memory. I took 4GB of memory as a suggestion
from Ralph Blach. After taking that memory out, Xen booted without a problem.
I'll include the serial console output after I install the memory again.
