Re: [Xen-devel] Crash/trace when starting oprofile

I tried the patches on a vanilla 3.2.13 kernel (patches applied cleanly \o/) with success!

In case this is helps anybody in the future, the issue here was that ubuntu's 3.0.0.x kernels with xen-hypervisor 4.1.1 and oprofile 0.9.6 did not work properly. 
In addition to building a stock kernel, I had to build the hypervisor from source in order to obtain the xen-syms image corresponding to hypervisor version 4.1.1, the one you specify with --xen to oprofile. (I did this with apt-get source in order to ensure that I was obtaining the same version).

Thank you for your help,

Thank you, I will try Michael's patches on a vanilla 3.0 or 3.2 kernel and report back.
However, on first sight the patches enable profiling on unprivileged guests (although the author calls it passive profiling, which as far as I know is the opposite), and I am trying to do unprivileged dom0 profiling. Lets hope this helps!

There are some patches floating around on xen-devel:
