No, no other offsets.

Tried that in the past (replacing the printk with a printf), and then I
just get in an infite printf loop, intf->rsp_cons and intf->rsp_prod are
corrupted, check_indexes in xb_read always returns false and this leads
to a infinite loop in xenbus_thread because process_msg always return error.

I've now compiled a kernel that has the panic and prints the ring
indexes. What's the best way to check who modifies intf->rsp_cons and
intf->rsp_prod? Will ddb watch work on this kind of memory region?
