[Xen-devel] Multiple issues with event channel on Xen on ARM

Hello David,

I'm currently trying to use Linux 3.14-rc1 as Linux guest on Xen on ARM (Xen 

I have multiple issues with your event channel patch series on Linux and Xen 
I tried to use Linux 3.14-rc1 as dom0 but it was worst (unable to create 

I'm using a simple guest config:

If everything is ok, I should see that Linux is unable to find the root 
But here, Linux is stucked.

From Linux side, after bisecting, I found that the offending commit is:
    xen/events: remove unnecessary init_evtchn_cpu_bindings()
    Because the guest-side binding of an event to a VCPU (i.e., setting
    the local per-cpu masks) is always explicitly done after an event
    channel is bound to a port, there is no need to initialize all
    possible events as bound to VCPU 0 at start of day or after a resume.

With this patch, the function __xen_evtchn_do_upcall won't be able
to find an events (pendings_bits == 0 every time).
It seems the second part of init_evtchn_cpu_bindings is necessary on ARM.

Now, if I'm using Linux 3.14-rc1 as guest and trying to destroy the domain,
I get this following Xen trace:
