Same here, I can’t figure it out. I’ll be more then happy to at least try to 
compile qemu-xen-traditional with the above mentioned patch. Unfortunately I 
can’t figure out how to patch the patch, so to speak. 

Can I help in the process of confirming this bug in qemu-xen-traditional? 

After doing IO intensive operations last week, two domains were killed, giving 
me this in syslog:
