Only suggestions to isolate the problem first, sorry :/

I occasionally encountered weird reboots, due to (virtual) ethernet
problems. They were all memory related, under reasonable load in dom0,
with pages bouncing back and forth between dom0 and domU.

What I would try (first) is to keep the NetBSD (domU, correct?) running,
but comment out the vif line in the associated xmdomain.cfg file, or
detach it, before doing your stress tests.

I'd like to see your network setup in dom0 (brctl + ifconfig), if it's
possible, too.
