This patch fixed also a NFS freeze for me in my XEN domU. I just build
a software project both in dom0 and domU in parallel (but in different
build directories) and it freezes during the first 5 minutes. (Hardware:
a quad core intel CPU, dom0 OpenSuse 10.2, domU Debian etch).

It's now also much faster (by a factor 5--10 for a configure script). It
still not as fast as expected so you may extent the patch :-)

It does at least for me, so please apply the patch.

I just copied the patch into patches/ of Xen 3.1 source and added it to
patches/series and did a normal build of Xen. Fairly simple (at least if
one does not forget to updates the modules in the domU)!


PS: Where does the patch come from? Are there more?
