blktap/blktap2 is not in mainline kernel, and I'm told that it will
never be accepted there. It does, however, work on Linux 3.0 (686-pae,
not amd64). Take a look at http://downloads.xen.org/XCP/debian and
download and install the blktap-dkms package. I may be wrong, but I
think the source repository for that package is on
http://xenbits.xen.org. I've got to run, sorry I can't be more help
right now.
