I am attempting to run xm-test in hvm mode.  I built successfully and then 
started runtests.sh. After about 30 seconds an error message appeared "Timed 
out connecting to console" or similar.  I then used xmexample.hvm to manually 
try and start disk.img fully virtualized and the following was the last few 
lines on the VMs terminal:
VFS: Cannot open root device "0301" or unknown-block(3,1)
Please append a correct "root=" boot option
Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(3,1)

Has anyone else seen this issue?  Did I do something wrong?

I built on SLES 10 beta 9 using that kernel for --with-hvm-kernel.
