(XEN) Panic on CPU 7:
(XEN) Assertion 'gt->gt_version != 0' failed at grant_table.c:216
(XEN) ****************************************
(XEN) Manual reset required ('noreboot' specified)

To reproduce:
* start Xen unstable HV (tried 2.6.18 Dom0)
* start a guest (we only tried HVM guests), letting them idle in grub
* # xm debug g

I haven't had time to investigate this (and am not very familiar with that part of the code), so any help is appreciated.
