Unfortunately the backtrace is a real mess. I might have better luck
deciphering it if you can provide a link to your 'vmlinux' file.

Even better, recompile your DOM0 kernel with arch/xen/kernel/traps.c
modified with 'kstack_depth_to_print' changed to a larger value like
240. This will give a fuller stack backtrace (it's currently less
useful because it's truncated). Then provide the backtrace and the
vmlinux file.

I fixed this earlier today.
