Did you give more than one vcpus to the guest?

Hi there all,

I have a paravirtualized  FreeBSD 8 xen domU going that I have
intermittent and repeatable kernel panic issues with. This is using a
i386 xen paravirtualized kernel from up to date (as of this morning at
the latest try) RELENG_8 sources. Ive tried this on a linux 64bit dom0
and 32bit dom0 both running xen 3.4.2.  The kernel will panic at
random from anywhere form a few hours to a few days with:

panic: mutex vm page queue mutex not owned at
KDB: enter: panic

Fairly low load when this happens, currently the domU machine only
runs some minor sendmail load. I can also get the domU virtual to
kernel panic in the same way on demand by having the configure script
run on the libgcrypt port or by running and exiting memtest. The
libgcrypt issue being the same as described in PR 140313.

Also tried running the domU kernel without SMP support, I see the same results.

So curious if anyone has any ideas on something Im missing or if
others see similar issues on a RELENG_8 i386 xen kernel.

Below, is also my current kernel configuration.

The domU kernel is booted via pvgrub, ther kernel called via:

kernel /boot/kernel/kernel
