Yeah, I got your message about paternity leave. Congrats! :)

It's a Linux 3.2 dom0 (I believe it's untouched vanilla) and Linux 3.2
domU (Ubuntu 12.04 beta, with 3.2.0-based Ubuntu kernel, PV).

And yes, blkif-backend. It's strange, because I/O seems to happen just
fine (and it's definitely not going through QEMU, since it's a PV
guest and the devices are clearly registered as VBDs), but the
interrupt counts are frozen.
