Sure, and of course thanks for help me co-debug it :)

Seems it's not a quite urgent bug, so may I firstly complete Xen RAS core error 
recovery patch?
I will have vacation for 2 weeks from Aug 19, before that I hope to make core 
error recovery patch done.
When I come back, I will fix this bug ASAP, is it OK for your plan? If not, 
please let me know.
