    • Xen based Linode VPS with a Xeon E5-2630L where avx is masked/disabled in Xen.

      Chroot into a stage3 build for x86_64 with glibc-2.15-r3 does not work on a xen based linode VPS with a Xeon E5-2630L due to linode disabling AVX in xen.

      Chroot fails with the following error message: "Illegal instruction".

      Linode probably is not going to enable avx, as "debian/ubuntu have gone the libc patch route ... https://launchpadlibrarian.net/101306417/eglibc_lucid_fix979003.debdiff" (quoting someon from the linode channel)
