Hi,

A little more background to this:

An error was first seen on Debian's i386 autobuilders when building Xen
4.1.2 (Debian package 4.1.2-7), but only after a switch from gcc-4.6 to
gcc-4.7 which seems to be what prompted this.  I'm not sure if it would
have affected amd64 builds as we don't have logs for those:

In order to fix the build issue, this patch was written, and is still
used when building Debian's Xen 4.1.3 packages:
http://patch-tracker.debian.org/patch/series/view/xen/4.1.3-7/xen-x86-interrupt-pointer-missmatch.diff

Since October 2012 many FreeBSD (9.x) users reported an issue booting on
Xenserver 6.1 / XCP 1.6 (incl. -BETA) but not affecting XCP 1.5:
http://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-xen/2012-October/001374.html

There were prior reports of identical symptoms triggered by guest CD-ROM
drives without media, but this seems to be an unrelated bug.

Egoitz, who has done a lot of work porting FreeBSD to XCP recently,
found that Debian's (Wheezy) Xen kernel didn't have this bug;  realised
that the above patch fixes it.

I experienced the bug when booting the FreeBSD 9.0 kernel on a NetBSD
6.0.1 dom0 after upgrading to pkgsrc-2012Q4 (Xen 4.1.3, from a binary
package, unsure which compiler was used to build it).  Likewise the
patch fixed the issue for me;  I used gcc 4.5.3.

Regards,


I compiled a clean checked out xen-4.1-testing.hg with and without the patch.

I created a objdump -S -D  from each xen-syms.
A diff -u between both objdump's shows this:

Are you sure? This looks like different ASCII texts to me:

-"12:33:35 UTC 2013"
-"12:33:35"
+"12:30:39 UTC 2013"
+"12:30:39"
 "chegge..."

Seems to be related to the time the file was generated.
