Check memory usage. Some kernels for domU have bug with incorrect free
memory reporting. In this case in OOM situation kernel become mad and
killing every process and start to panic. And oom happens not at very
end of memory, but much early. 

Just try to disable swap in VM and 'eat' memory. I usually use
interactive python with constructions:
a=" "*1024*1024*256
b=" "*1024*1024*128
c=" "*1024*1024*64, etc... Until OOM happens. If python killed - kernel
sane. If Something Horrible Happens - buggy kernel. 

F.e. debian xen-686 kernel is buggy, I right now takling with
maintainers. Gentoo/SUSE kernel is fine with memory but have some issues
with wallclock.
