In a the latest release I see multiple messages like this in xm dmesg 
every time I start a domain.

(XEN) event_channel.c:233:d0 EVTCHNOP failure: domain 14, error -22

I eventually foind out this was caused by multiple copioes of 
xenconsoled running...

root      1485  0.0  0.0  86580   528 ?        SLl  01:58   0:00 
xenconsoled --pid-file=/var/run/xenconsoled.pid
root      1679  0.0  0.0  86580   488 ?        SLl  01:58   0:00 
/usr/sbin/xenconsoled --log=none --log-dir=/var/log/xen/console

It looks like one is started by xencommons and one by the actual 
xenconsoled init script

clueref: http://lists.xen.org/archives/html/xen-devel/2014-01/msg02460.html

Running '/etc/init.d/xenconsoled stop' solves the unexpected messages. 
I'm not sure if this is a bug in the package scripts, an leftover init 
script, or my PEBKAC.

What is expected there? Should I just disable the xenconsoled init 
script? If thats the case why is that file present?

Appreciate any thoughts on what is the best thing to do there.
