you don't need "type=paravirtual", just remove it. Where did you find
"type=paravirtual" anyway? I've never seen it on any of the examples.

At this point I'd start with using known-good setup first, since it
can save a lot of time. Try using 2.6.34 + the patch I mentioned
earlier for both dom0 and PV domU.
