There is a known "xm console" issue related with VMX. When "serial" is
enabled in script and no once uses "xm console" to read the console,
VMX boting will hang due to the buffer is full.
I added a "select" before "write". If it could not be written,
unix_write will Return immediately and it will not block the VMX
booting. With this fix, we can make VMX's serial enable by default.

2 ===========
4 The xen-bugtool command line application will collate the Xen dmesg output,
5 details of the hardware configuration of your machine, information about the
6 build of Xen that you are using, plus, if you allow it, various logs.
8 The information collated can either be posted to a Xen Bugzilla bug (this bug
9 must already exist in the system, and you must be a registered user there), or
10 it can be saved as a .tar.bz2 for sending or archiving.
12 The collated logs may contain private information, and if you are at all
13 worried about that, you should not use this tool, or you should explicitly
14 exclude those logs from the archive.
16 xen-bugtool is wholly interactive, so simply run it, and answer the questions.
