Thanks for the heads-up.  It's been running through XenServer's tests
as well as the XenProject's "osstest" -- I haven't heard of any
additional issues, but I'll ask.

It's possible also that it's some interaction between the specific
CentOS environment -- the gcc version, the particular dom0 kernel, &c.
I'll ask Anthony if he can run the CentOS packages through osstest and
see if anything comes up.
