I originally sent this message to freebsd-current.  Got no response, perhaps
freebsd-xen is a better mailing list. (-:

Since the end of August I have been unable to boot a generic kernel from
FreeBSD current or 8 under XEN 5.5.0.  Finally had a chance to briefly look
at the problem.  If I apply attached patch to remove calls to clflush() I
am able to boot current.  Hopefully somebody can shed some light.  Is
XEN incorrecty reporting CPUID_CLFSH or is XEN not correctly virtualizing
this option.  Or is the issue someplace else?  I have also attached the
dmesg from a successful boot.  This issue seems to be same as

Here is an attempt to type backtrace from non-booting kernel:
