Yep, I know, the forward-port in lenny is buggy on some setups
(for example requiring pci=nomsi to boot). Also live migrations
seem to be broken with it.

The .31 forward-port seems more stable, based on the user comments so far.
Then again it's based on the SLES11 forward-port, so Novell has worked
pretty hard on it.. (lenny .26 forward-port was some early version).

I've been testing pv_ops dom0 tree myself ever since it was introduced,
and I've been hunting many bugs from it.. I'm currently helping to debug
the drm/ttm stuff, which isn't working.
