Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 433616
[Xen] vmalloc/vfree on HVM Guest/IA64 does untolerate performance.

This bug has been copied from bug #272201 and has been proposed
to be backported to 5.1 z-stream (EUS).
Set dev ack
Fujitsu has been testing this fix with RHEL5.1 kernel for a couple of months,
and found no problem. The test includes stress test and performance
measurement as well as basic function tests to create/destroy PV/HVM domains,
Linux and Windows guests. In addition, the fix was committed in the upstream
half an year ago, so I believe it has been tested for sufficient time.
If what Yamamoto-san wrote is correct, can anyone please commit this fix
for rhel5.2 and change the status into MODIFIED?
