Ok, thanks for trying and reporting back.

If possible, help me understand things a bit better.

So, can you confirm that the situation _actually_improves_ with Xen
4.10 ? 

Basically, as far as I've understood things, with Xen 4.9, you destroy
a guest, and you can _never_ re-create it, not even after 30 seconds,
90 seconds, 2 minutes, 1 hour, ecc. Is that correct?

With Xen 4.10, it may still fail, if you try to re-create it within ~30
to 90 seconds, but after that, it works. Is that also correct?

I need to know this, because I want to understand if the issue is, at
least partially, cured by the RCU fixes, although having to wait 30
seconds is definitely not what I was expecting (i.e., there might be
something else).

Another question, in case I manage to produce a debug patch, are you ok
to put it in your source tree, build with it, and tell us what you see?

Thanks again and Regards,
