RE: [Xen-devel] Lot's of OOPS

Yeah, I'm trying to piece together if this is a bug in the image (from
possible corruption ... Repeated crashes)...  Or if it's a xen / kernel
issue.  I just created a new VMX domain and ran specjbb on it for appr
1240 minutes... It was only running for 40 mins or less on a Linux
domain (and yes I do mean dom0 + 1 VM / domU)... I'm going to copy my
image for the VMX domain to a Linux domain and see if the issue
reappears... If it doesn't, I'll chalk it up to silliness... Otherwise,
I'll continue to research.

I have disabled CONFIG_SMP on both xenU and xen0
I have disabled CONFIG_HIGHMEM4G on xen0
I have enabled CONFIG_HIGHMEM4G on xenU

I can send you the rest of my .config(s) if you're interested.

Regarding the objdump, what exactly am I looking to do here... I'm not
familiar with low level kernel hacking.

Do you mean dom0 plus 1 other domain?

CONFIG_SMP got enabled by default recently, but I'd be slightly
surprised if that was the problem as a bunch of people had tested it
pretty hard. Similarly for CONFIG_HIGHMEM4G.

It would be great if you could try and get a simple recipe to reproduce.
