Thanks, I can confirm that the patches fix the crash for me.
The half-life of PV Solaris is still under the microsecond.
Btw. I have managed to get gdbsx going by replacing "/proc/xen/privcmd"
Indeed, the state of Solaris is pretty bad:
- Solaris 11.3 under HVM boots, but the installer complains there
are no local disks (which is not true, even device nodes are there
under /dev/dsk/ ... )
- OpenIndiana (OI-hipster-text-20160421.iso as HVM) hangs after printing
out the kernel version message
- SmartOS (smartos-20160428T170316Z.iso)
seems to work at first, but after the initial configuration
it cannot bring the network interface up because its link
state is unknown (tried model=e1000 and the default Realtek):
