It seems like I have got hit by this bug and I can reproduce it with a
suspend/resume of a domU.
I'm running stock OpenSuse 10.3 so 

# xm dmesg|grep -E "Xen version|timer"
 Xen version 3.1.0_15042-51.3 (abuild@xxxxxxx) (gcc version 4.2.1 (SUSE Linux))
Thu Dec 20 19:57:34 UTC 2007
(XEN) Platform timer is 25.000MHz HPET

The systems in question are two dualcore athlon servers so SMP is involved in
the equation.

I had this issue that the domain locked up before but after changing
clocksource to jiffies at least that problem was resolved.
Now I started to play with xen migration and the showblocker is that after
suspend/resume the clock in domU starts to go all over the place including
backwards. Only way to recover is reboot domU, which defeats the whole purpose
of migration.
