xen output captured via console=com1
Description of problem:
Starting F16 kernel 3.1.1 under xen 4.1.2 does not work. After starting xen no additional messages are displayed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install xen
2. choose f16 with xen in grub
Nothing, no message at all, no automatic reboot
f16 running as dom0
xen logfile attached
Did you look in http://wiki.xen.org/xenwiki/XenParavirtOps to follow the troubleshoot guide and capture some details?
Do you get any details if you provide 'console=hvc0 debug loglevel=8' on the Linux line? And on the Xen hypervisor line youy have 'sync_console console_to_ring loglvl=all'?
What hardware is this?
Is there a reason for using acpi=ht?
Hmm, this is not reassuring:
(XEN) ERROR: Unable to locate IOAPIC for GSI 9
(XEN) No IOAPIC for GSI 9
What are the arguments for the Linux command line?
Have you added some extra ones?

Initial logfile with boot options

second logfile with requested boot options
This is a Intel D945GCLF2 Motherboard with 2 Atom CPUs.
I have read in the net that my issue is related to acpi. So I have tried some options.
My initial logfile was holding several attempts because I forgot to truncate it.
I have attached one logfile with the boot options and the messages only from this attempt.
A second file is attached with your requested options and the messages from this run.
Interesting. There is another bug with an Atom machine not booting either- Bug #745961 that has the same exact error:
[ 0.143986] reserve RAM buffer: 00000001097be000 - 000000010bffffff (XEN) domain_crash_sync called from entry.S (ff1d9724)
(XEN) Domain 0 (vcpu#0) crashed on cpu#1:
I found out that if I update the kernel to 3.2-rc1 it works just great.
Great news !
But how do I update the kernel to 3.2-rc1 ?
I cannot find that version in the repos.
