Sounds like Xen is unhappy on your hardware, possibly an interrupt
problem. Since this code is very different in the unstable (3.0

What drivers/modules does the kernel have loaded? Can you provoke the

It would be good to compare the boot output of native and Xen kernels

You'll probably need to switch to building your own Xen installation
from source to make progress on this.
