In Dan's patch, I don't know about the change to XendConfig.py, but the
change from ['platform'].get('timer_mode') to ['timer_mode'] doesn't look
very likely. All other HVM config parameters handed down from xm create end
up in the 'platform' dict.

Is the change to XendConfig.py to specify a default for timer_mode actually
ending up putting that default value in the wrong place: in the vmconfig as
a first-class entry in its own right, rather than as a sub-key of

If the problem is lack of a default value for timer_mode in some cases, I'd
rather fix XendDomainInfo.py to handle non-existent timer_mode key.
