I don't think they were yet -- until recently it seemed like a xenstored
bug. Philipp, can you post them now?

Also the patch linked to by David seems like a good thing to try if you
are indeed running a kernel which is susceptible to this issue.

It's (almost certainly) not a PVH issue, I was saying that the patch
which touched PVH probably isn't relevant to this particular issue.
