Hi Suriyan,

I also noticed that in some instances of "xl create" it does bring up
domU with 4 cpus as mentioned in the domU.cfg file, and in those
instances the domU boots up.

Is this some kind of bug?

We use PSCI to boot secondary CPUs. You may want to check the the PSCI
has effectively been issued for those VCPUs.

I shall check on this!

Which Xen and Linux version are you using?

Xen is 4.5 dev (git clone git://xenbits.xen.org/xen.git)
Linux is 3.14 from hardkernel linux repository, branch:

Can you try a Linux upstream? The error may come from the hardkernel

Is this for domU?
For dom0, I do not have a working kernel for upstream for the XU. I
did try 3.16 samsung-next as well as mainline linux and the dts needs
to be worked upon (or so I think)

I was talking about domU.

Using upstream for domU exhibits the same behavior.

One out of roughly 10 creates succeeds (I can get console output).
In the cases that succeed, I do see that do_psci_cpu_on() gets called.
In the cases that domU does not boot up, the call to do_psci_cpu_on()
does not happen.

Reading back one of your previous mail:

"I have noticed that there is no ARM port of XEN having more than 2
CPUs. Is that correct? I am mentioning this, cause with the XU, though
I can bring up all 4 processors in XEN and in dom0, domU fails to make
much boot progress when it is xl created. I am able to boot domU, if I
restrict the dtb for dom0 to 2 CPUs."

By "I restrict the dtb for dom0 to 2 CPUs", did you mean removing some
CPUs in the device tree or using dom0_max_vcpus=2 on Xen command line?

I forgot a question. Does a guest with 1 VCPU is working fine? I can't fine any clue on your mails.

I was wondering if dom0 is touching the physical CPUs by mistake (mainly
because we map some regions used to control them).
It might be worse to check that no cpufreq or power management is called
on DOM0 at any time.
