xen.gz is the hypervisor. xen-linux-2.6.10 is your kernel. They should
*not* be the same size at all:

-rw-r--r--  1 root root  116602 Feb  4 00:40 /boot/xen.gz
-rw-r--r--  1 root root 2210694 Feb  9 01:36 /boot/xen-linux-2.6.10-xen0-shiro-1

Please reinstall the debian package you made with make-kpkg, you've
probably corrupted your kernel binary somehow.
