The "crash" bugs me. If it is a normal exit that's fine.

Valtteri now it is up to you. :-)



I'm now at holiday couple of weeks but after that I will double check my kernel config and post a proper bug report if needed. I just had this feeling that the pre 4.0 xen versions (for example xen 3.4 with 2.6.18 xenified kernel) handled the suspend differently and figured that maybe there is still something missing from xl toolstack. That 2.6.16 kernel is so old that I just assumed that it does not have cpu hotplug support and figured that maybe it is something that xl toolstack does not handle. But you are probably right, I'm just blind and missed the option in the menuconfig :)

Its hard to remember all the changes that has happened in Xen and Linux kernels and which options need to be enabled etc. But I will test it more thoroughly after my holiday.
