Description Alexander Todorov 2010-05-24 11:51:30 EDT
Description of problem:
Trying to start RHEL6 snap5 (0523.0) as FV xen guest on sun-x4440-01.rhts.eng.bos.redhat.com (RHEL5.5 GA, x86_64) results in kernel panic in the guest.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
host: RHEL 5.5 GA, x86_64, 
guest: RHEL6.0-20100523.0/Server/x86_64, kernel 2.6.32-28

How reproducible:
Always on that particular host

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Using virt-manager create new guest
2. Select Linux/RHEL6 for OS type/variant, select to boot from boot.iso
3. Proceed with default settings.
  
Actual results:
Guest shows the inital grub menu. When the installer boots there's kernel panic. 

Expected results:
Guest boots into anaconda. 

Additional info:
Looks similar to bug 570496. Also on the guest console I see this timeout: 
XENBUS: Waiting for devices to initialise: 295s...290s...285s...280s...275s...270s...265s...260s...255s...250s...245s...240s...235s...230s...225s...220s...215s...210s...205s...200s...195s...190s...185s...180s...175s...170s...165s...160s...155s...150s...145s...140s...135s...130s...125s...120s...115s...110s...105s...100s...95s...90s...85s...80s...75s...70s...65s...60s...55s...50s...45s...40s...35s...30s...25s...20s...15s...10s...5s...0s...

which is related to bug 396621

This is a known issue, and a patch has already been sent to the list to fix it. It should be fixed in the next build.
