Hmm, pci=nomsi on the Linux command line did the trick for me.

The Debian system still fails to continue booting to the login prompt,
though: something's wrong in the init machinery, the same thing as
reported on
for example.  The initrds of 2.6.26-2-amd64 and 2.6.26-2-xen-amd64 are
identical (apart form the kernel modules, of course), so it is probably a
kernel configuration issue.  Sigh.

What Linux kernels are people using for the dom0 in Debian?
