>Originator:     Andreas Gustafsson
>Release:        NetBSD 6.0.1
System: NetBSD 6.0.1 NetBSD 6.0.1 (XEN3_DOM0) amd64

Architecture: x86_64
Machine: amd64

I have an amd64 machine running Xen 4.1.4 with a NetBSD 6.0.1 dom0.
It is successfully hosting one NetBSD 5.2 i386PAE domU residing
on a physical disk (as in disk = [ 'phy:/dev/wd1d,0x1,w' ]).

I have been trying to create a second domU "bloute" which unlike the
existing domU would reside in a disk image file in the dom0 file

So far, all my attempts have failed; when I run "xl create -c
/usr/pkg/etc/xen/bloute" I get the error message "xenconsole: Could
not read tty from store: No such file or directory".  However, the
subject of this bug report is not the failure to create the domU, but
the more serious problem that one of my attempts triggered a panic
in the dom0.

The contents of the configuration file /usr/pkg/etc/xen/bloute were:

  kernel = "/root/netbsd-XEN3PAE_DOMU-5.2"
  memory = 512
  name = "bloute"
  vcpus = 1
  nics = 1
  vif = [ 'mac=00:0c:29:90:62:eb, bridge=bridge0' ]
  disk= [ 'file:/root/bloute.img,xvda,w' ]
  root = "xbd0a"

The following output appeared on the console:

Don't know.  I made several attempts at creating the domU, and
although they all failed, only the last one caused a dom0 panic.
Since the machine is also hosting a production domU and a successful
reproduction of the bug would cause downtime for that domU, I am
reluctant to try.
