Yup Tony, thats it. Beofre actually detecting this panic we uses to just hang with the last of the buffered output showing that Linux was processing the dt_* tree (IIRC), now at least the panic flushed out put and shows you why. -JX On Sep 14, 2006, at 3:11 AM, Tony Breeds wrote: On Tue,

Sometimes when Xen is booted and we let Linux init the MPIC for the second time Xen could end up in a loop where the CPU is constantly being interrupted by the MPIC. Because of console buffering, the last message you see is some message from early kernel boot. Anyway.. we detect this now
