Re: [Xen-devel] Kernel bug from 3.0 (was phy disks and vifs timing out in DomU)

Hello Anthony,

Perhaps you could try running with xend instead of the xl toolstack ?
Since you have also changed the hypervisor version to 4.1.1, i think you were 
previously using xend instead of xl ?

So in theory it could also be a problem in the xl toolstack causing the extra 
qemu processes when building the domain.
