Re: [Xen-devel] Intermittent fatal page fault with XEN 4.3.1 (Centos 6.3 DOM0 with linux kernel 3.10.16.)

Jan, Andrew, Ian,

pulling in Jeff who raised the question. Snippets from misc replies attached. Jeff, please look through these (in particular Jan's answer) and answer any further questions on this thread.

Agreed. Another option is for me to start the thread and pull in the raiser of the thread into it, if it is a bug. Was not sure this was a real bug at first, but it seems it is.

[Jeff] We were careful to regenerate all the images after upgrading the 4.3.1. Also saw the same problem on 4.3.0.

[Jeff] Not using nested-virt.

I have a 32 core system running XEN 4.3.1 with 30 Windows XP VM's.
DOM0 is Centos 6.3 based with linux kernel 3.10.16.
In my configuration all of the windows HVMs are running having been
restored from xl save.
VM's are destroyed or restored in an on-demand fashion. After some time XEN
will experience a fatal page fault while restoring one of the windows HVM
subjects. This does not happen very often, perhaps once in a 16 to 48 hour
The stack trace from xen follows. Thanks in advance for any help.

Zapping addresses (here and below in the stack trace) is never
helpful when someone asks for help with a crash. Also, in order
to not just guess, the matching xen-syms or xen.efi should be
made available or pointed to.

This makes me suspect that domain_page_map_to_mfn() gets a
NULL pointer passed here. As said above, this is only guesswork
at this point, and as Ian already pointed out, directing the
reporter to xen-devel would seem to be the right thing to do
here anyway.
