I will be more than glad to help but unfortunately I cannot do much in the 
following week or two (must deploy several critical production servers). From 
the same reason my Xen testing will calm down a little :)

Also, I can confirm that P4 is a safe CPU config option when building 100% 
monolith XenoLinux while QoS seems to have strange effects. Only thing left 
to be tested is interaction of the afore mentioned when building modular 
kernel. Then I will have definitive answers about problematic/safe options. I 
suspect that mmu update panic is somehow related to modular kernel.

Sure, I just wanted to optimize the size of the guest image :)
