Sadly, no. I was not able to replicate this on my machines (I did test
on Xen 4.1). However, as I saw this issue appears on Xen 3.4 and 4.0
(IIRC version numbers used on your machines). Additionally, it does not
depend on CPU models. And it appears quite often but not always.
Maybe it is linked with singleshot timer migration.
