    [virt] xen: mask MTRR feature from guest BZ#750758

at the last minute to support kdump for xen hvm guests. We should try and bring it back (while keeping kdump working).

Comment 1 RHEL Program Management 2012-07-10 06:08:01 UTC
This request was not resolved in time for the current release.
Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if still desired, for consideration in
the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

Comment 2 RHEL Program Management 2012-07-10 23:35:44 UTC
This request was erroneously removed from consideration in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4, which is currently under development.  This request will be evaluated for inclusion in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4.

Comment 4 Andrew Jones 2012-11-21 13:33:11 UTC
I'm not sure we want to post this again (maybe not worth it), but Igor has hardware to test with, so assigning to him.
