Re: Backtraces in mirage?

Just to be clear, are you running separate OPAM switches for the different 
versions you are running?  3.12-generated code will not work on the 4.01 
runtime reliably.  Regarding the trace mode, that only works for OCaml code, 
and not for the actual C runtime (which it sounds like is your problem here).  
I'm afraid judicious printfs remain the best option, unless you setup a 
gdbserver environment for the VM.

What's actually involved in suspending a PV guest from a low-level perspective? 
Do you just need to reconstruct your page tables on resume?  If you have the 
3.12.1/Mirage/monolithic patches that used to work, I can eyeball them to see 
if anything has changed in the general area that might affect it on the latest
