I kind of run the nightly build/test rinse & repeat cycle using this:

git://xenbits.xen.org/xentesttools/bootstrap.git

But it might be just easier for you to install Fedora Core 16, do
'yum install xen', reboot, make sure you can boot Xen, and then build
a 3.2 kernel with your patch + debug stuff.

A dump_stack() should suffice I presume? Yeah let me do that.
