[Xen-bugs] [Bug 1016] New: time moves 300x to fast!


           Summary: time moves 300x to fast!
           Product: Xen
           Version: 3.0.4
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: Linux-2.6
            Status: NEW
          Severity: critical
          Priority: P2
         Component: Unspecified
        AssignedTo: xen-bugs@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
        ReportedBy: dratone@xxxxxxxxx

Hello folks,

I've got the following problem,I've got a xen kernel completely compiled on a
AMD64 architecture (see below for further hardware specs). When I boot from
that kernel, the time goes aproximatly 300 times to fast (300 seconds per
second, 5 hours per minute!).

I've also compiled the same kernel (2.6.18), vanilla style without any
problems. I copied that .config file to the xen build directory (from the top
of my head something like build-linux-2.6.18-xen/.config) and ran make
linux-2.6-xen-config CONFIGMODE=oldconfig, and enabled all the desired xen
functionality (basically just the defaults except for the first 'XEN Compatible
kernel' question, to wich i answered 'Y')

after I set up grub to boot from it, I reboot. And the time goes incredibly
fast. The moment i type 'root' at the login prompt it comes with the 60 seconds
login timeout warning imediatly.

Eventually i managed to get a console by appending init=/bin/bash to the grub
command line. But after a while my entire server crashed because of that.

I'll check the unstable version in a minute to see if that works. If not i'll
report back my findings.

Any tips on how to debug this? Because i'm rather out of idea's at the moment.
