Thanks for the reminder, I'll up-port the patches.
For refrence I have been using:

ia64/xen-unstable.hg 16217:c17bfb091790
ia64/linux-2.6.18-xen.hg 255:4cf72481b5ed

Thanks, I appreciate it.

I guess that not seeing a problem is good because things it means that

Perhaps his HW is different in some way - memory configuration?;
devices?; firmware?.

Thanks. I will be departing for Xen Summit tomorrow afternoon.  So other
than today and tomorrow morning I'm unlikely to have time to do
investigations until next week.
