To be honest, bisection was kinda hazy in the last step (see my previous
mails), but from looking at the bisection log, it's definitely one of
your/Brians commit (sorry!), so it may be 3bd95dfb in combination with the
other 4 changes. However, only with 3bd95dfb applied, the DomU wouldn't
start at all. With the only other patches applied, the DomU would start,
and then die with a GPF.

Christian.
