Hi Kip,

After rebuilding the kernel (which improved stability by roughly 80%) and
rebuilding world (which improved stability by another 19% ;) the userland
seems to be much more stable now! Kernel wise I hit the bug you described
below at every bootup/shutdown and the first hit of a key on the console,
but the system keeps running afterwards...

Booting with 2 CPUs is still ending up in

Spanic: blockable sleep lock (sleep mutex) XCONS LOCK @
dev/xen/console/console.c:290
cpuid = 1
KDB: enter: panic
[thread pid 11 tid 100003 ]
Stopped at      kdb_enter+0x3a: movl    $0,kdb_why

Anyway, thanks for your effort!

Kai
