After an update and a reboot, and turning off soft lockup detection, I'm still getting zombie domains. It also appears that after this happens, no new block devices can be attached.

Okay, this issue should be fixed in both the -unstable and -3.0-testing trees. I pushed directly into the 3.0.2 release tree as the original blkback kernel-thread loop was very broken indeed. I'm sure the fix is a strict improvement. :-)

Look for changeset comment "Fix the blkif_schedule() kthread loop." when you pull -- that's the changeset that contains the fix.
