[Xen-users] Xen 3.0.0 32bit-pae (testing changeset 8270) crashes (pgtabl
I've got two identical system with the following specs:
- Dual Xeon 2,8GHz (HT enabled)
- 4GB RAM
- 3x160GB SATA HDD
- 3ware 9000 controller (with 4 sata-ports)
- Intel Board
- 2x Intel GBit NICs (onboard)
- Rage XL VGA (onboard)
Both systems were running debian sarge (3.1) with xen 2.0.7 for a long time
without any problems at all. Xen 3.0.0 also seems to work fine, as long as
the normal i386 mode is used. With pae both systems crashes everytime I want
to create a domainU that needs to use some ram of last GB available. I
haven't tested x86_64 on this machines at all.
With xen 2.0.7 I had only 3GB of the complete 4GB available, and with
xen3.0.0-pae it seems so that I can use the same amount of ram safely (about
3GB) and if I want to assign memory from the last GB to new domainUs, then
the whole system crashes. Without using the last gb of ram the system seems
to run very stable.
The following is shown (when the flag "noreboot" was used at boot time or if
the output was grabed over a serial line). Without "noreboot" the whole
system will reboot immidently:
kernel BUG at arch/xen/i386/mm/pgtable.c:284 (pgd_ctor)!
Kernel panic - not syncing: BUG!
the interessting lines in xen's dmesg log regarding the memory layout are
(XEN) PHYSICAL MEMORY ARRANGEMENT:

I already checked the bios settings and changed all settings that could have
something to do with pae. it doesn't make any difference at all.
Has somebody a clue what's happening here? Is it really a xen bug? If so, why
is nobody else having this problem? Is it a problem with the hardware? at
least windows with pae and native linux seems to work without a problem on
the very same hardware.
If a developer wants to take a closer look, ssh access should be possible.
