It may be worth trying either Xen-unstable or 3.0.4-1 - there are
several fixes in the code dealing with 64-bit issues on both Intel and
AMD. It may of course STILL be broken, but it's definitely possible that
it's been fixes added that solves the problem. [I haven't tried any of
the above on AMD or Intel machines - so I can't say].
