So these patches still need to be applied to Xen 4.2 branch:

"[PATCH] libxl: don't launch more than one tapdisk process for each disk"

Xen 4.2 backport of the above patch is here:

And now there's other tapdisk patch in xen-unstable aswell:

"tools: Retry blktap2 tapdisk message on interrupt":

Both are needed in Xen 4.2 branch, please backport/apply before next Xen 
4.2.2-rc !

I'm asking because we've seen these problems with the CentOS 6 Xen 4.2 rpms,
and it'd be good to get them fixed in upstream Xen 4.2 aswell.
