           Summary: Unable to boot guest domain using unified Xen kernel
           Product: Xen
           Version: unstable
          Platform: x86-64
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: major
          Priority: P2
         Component: Tools
        AssignedTo: xen-bugs@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
        ReportedBy: dbarrera@xxxxxxxxxx
                CC: pl@xxxxxxxxxx, hohnbaum@xxxxxxxxxx

I am having trouble booting a guest domain using the unified Xen kernel (it
works fine using the XenU kernel). Whenever I try to create the domain, I get
the following message:

bl2-1:/tmp/xen # xm create -c vm1.cfg
Using config file "vm1.cfg".
Error: (9, 'Bad file descriptor')

The build was done using 'make world' and 'make install', and there were no
build errors:
