Hi list,
I am hunting a bug between libvirt and xen, which seems to appeared after xen-4.0.1rc3.

The problem is a "pipe leak". Each connection to libvirt leaves 3 open files:
libvirtd  14758       root   18u     unix 0xffff88002600ed00              351779 socket
libvirtd  14758       root   19r     FIFO                0,8              351781 pipe
libvirtd  14758       root   20w     FIFO                0,8              351781 pipe

Steps to reproduce:
1. install xen-4.0.1 and libvirt 0.7.6+
2. for i in `seq 1 1000`; do virsh -c xen://daman.vmin.cz list; done
if fails on "Too many open files"

After libvirt restart, works fine for cca 300 connections

I have not seen this with xen-3. Since libvirt links libxenstore:
        libxenstore.so.3.0 => /usr/lib/libxenstore.so.3.0 (0x00007f8845fea000)
and since I have a box with xen-4.0.1rc3 which seems to work well, I have tried to replace libxenstore.so.3.0 with one from older box. Voila, no "pipe leak".

Now I would like to look into sources and try to find which change introduced this behavior. Unfortunatelly,
I am unable to clone git repo:

Does anyone have a fresh copy of xen repo? I'd like to try "git bisect".
