Looking at dmesg, I think it's possible that you misconfigured
domain-0's command line. There are no obvious device problems there.

Unfortunately our usual debugging strategy is to collect console
output from the serial line. We automatically reboot the machine on an
error because it gets really annoying having to manually reset a
remote machine :-)

What I can do is fix xen 1.0 so that it hangs, rather than rebooting,
if you don't configure the serial line (the serial line is only
configured if you specify 'ser_baud=xxx' on Xen's command line).

Would you like me to post you a patch, or make a new binary available
for you to download?
