I have quite a few machines running both intel and amd cpus with the
debian packages for 3.2 from 4gb ram up to 64gb and no problems. I
also pin cpus and don't share dom0's cpu with any domU's. My guess is
hes doing something strange to trigger it? I know there are some known
bugs in that version but i have upwards of 10 machines running it with
very high uptimes.
