I strongly disagree with this commit. Some freak back-ported it into
2.3.32 and since then fear and suffering was brought to many innocent
people. It took me straight 3 hours of bisecting & testing to find out
why latest "stable" "longterm" 2.6.32 kernel (used as Xen PVops) won't
even boot on latest CentOS' standard dom0.

Something's wrong up there in the heavens. Can we get a working kernel
on, please, and more testing/reviewing in the future?
