Well, xen still tries to forward the trap to that vector then, but I
want to avoid exactly that.

The problem I have is that my kernel faults somewhere, but I'm already
that far in doing kexec that the usual linux kernel trap handling isn't
going to work any more.  What I'd like to see is xen print out a
register dump, with EIP being the faulting instruction, not the
(non-working) fault handler entry point.

Guess I have to hack xen a bit for that ...
