Dear Sean,

I've applied the patches to 8.2/releng, but as I am not an xen/i386 expert, some patches may got applied wrong. Although the kernel did compile, it did not boot, just crashed.

Dear Sean,

I've investigated the problem, and found the following:

When starting with
# xm create -c /dev/null kernel=/home/krichy/kernel extra="kern.hz=100"

The kernel boots up, but when adding only one more MB to it, as:
# xm create -c /dev/null kernel=/home/krichy/kernel extra="kern.hz=100"

it does crash.

The config is the simple one I've attached previously, with pf and pflog
disabled. But again, if I enable pf and pflog, the domain starts with
512MB ram well.


Ah, this one!  Alan has resolved these issues in xen on -current at the
moment.  I suspect an MFC is coming soon:

If you want to try r229007, r228935, r228923, r228747, r228746 and
r228522 on stable/8 we'd appreciate the testing.
