--- Comment #47 from lists dev <lists@xxxxxxxxxxxx> ---
fyi,

chroot into an opensuse pvhvm guest
mkinitrd
exit chroot
launch guest -> FAILs

destroy guest
re-enter chroot
mkinitrd -A
launch guest -> BOOTS OK

`xl console` into running guest
mkinitrd -A
reboot guest -> BOOTS OK

`xl console` into running guest
mkinitrd
reboot guest -> BOOTS OK

destroy guest
re-enter chroot
mkinitrd
launch guest -> FAILs

destroy guest
re-enter chroot
mkinitrd -A
launch guest -> BOOTS OK

rinse/repeat, ad infinitum ...

There's something obviously unhealthy about in-chroot, 'just' `mkinitrd`.

I'm not sure how any of that explains why the chroot + mkinitrd -A was needed
on the unhacked-guests, after the 4.7 -> 4.8 upgrade -- apparently, just the
once to get it to boot, post-upgrade the 1st time.
