Bug#613634: The fix works
 
I built the package linux-image-2.6.32-5-xen-amd64 with the patch
attached to this mail (which is a slightly modified version of the patch
mentionned on xen-devel@).

It works fine.

My test was to run this command:
while [ 1 ]; do
lvcreate -n test -L 1G nsia.st2xnX
lvremove -f /dev/mapper/nsia.st2xnX-test
done

Volume group is on an iSCSI multipathed device.

With the official Debian package, the server crashed 100% of the times
in less than 30 seconds (more than 80% of the times in less than 3
seconds).

With the patch applied, the command ran for about an hour without any
crashes.

I put the patch in debian/patches/bugfix/ and I added this line at the
end of debian/patches/series/31-extra
+ bugfix/nsia-xen-invalidopcode-bug613634.patch featureset=xen

I'm not sure it is the good way, but I'm not a packaging expert :-).
