Re: [Xen-devel] Newer Changesets broke Dom0 boot with 2.6.7

I tried your proposals, but it helped only to solve a
part of the problems:

By either adding "nosegfixup" to the kernel command line
and/or renaming /lib/tls, I could get rid of the segfaults which
totally prevented the 2.6.7 kernel from booting in Dom0 (Csets 1.1158+).
So, in this case, it helped a lot ;-)

However, it did not remove the segfaults generated by
kudzu and hwclock, which were introduced around
CSet 1.1154.
It seems that something was changed concerning how
you directly access hardware in xen(-linux) starting
around CSet 1.1154, because both kudzu and hwclock
directly address hardware (..?).

If you need any further debugging for both issues (I assume
"nosegfixup" is only a workaround and not a real bugfix) 
from me, just drop me an email and tell me what debug
options I have to activate ;-)

Thx + have a nice weekend to all,
  Sven...switching over from computer live to real live....
