I sent too soon.  The domain was sticking around, but it was apparently
because I still had "-kd" in my kernel command line, not because it was
being made happier by a tap device.

If I have the tun/tap driver loaded in dom0, "xm console" and "xm create
-c" both bail out with the "Could not read tty" message.

If I unload the tun module, I get a serial connection again, where I can
watch the kernel panic and die just like it did before.  But then my HVM
domains fail to boot.
