The only extra patch applied on top of what is on the web page (as per
Jeff's instructions) is the mconsole-exec patch, and AFAIK it wouldn't
affect the code above.

Alexander Nyberg is also experiencing crashes, aren't you?
Just un-compressing portage (20MB .tar.bz2) on the root_fs image posted
earlier caused a different kind of mis-behaviour, the guest lost network
connectivity, cpu usage shot up on the host (load > 10 now), and I found
this in the host log:
kernel: segfault at 00000000df2948d0 rip 00000000601e5beb
rsp00000000df2948d0 error 4
(same kernel as earlier crashes...)
That's on a different box, running a different host kernel (FC3 2.6.9-?)
The really weird thing is that the processes are still running, but ps
-ef shows an empty string in place of the process name:
(and the terminal which launched the instance got control back)
I am now rebuilding a new kernel on another test box, let me know what
to do to provide better debug information.
