Are you using an uncompressed copy of the mdroot I posted?

Duh - obviously. The only thing I can think of is that the mdroot is
corrupted. I'll double check the bits I've posted.

I got exactly these symptoms with the posted mdroot, and we fixed
it with a slightly different block device export. I'm using this
as my domain definition:

kernel = "/boot/freebsd-5.2.1-xenU"
memory = 64
cpu = -1
name = "XXVIII"
vif = [ 'mac=aa:00:00:00:00:28, bridge=xen-br0' ]
disk = [ 'phy:munkyII/vm-XXVIII,loopa,w' ]
extra = "boot.netif.ip="
extra += ",boot.netif.netmask="
extra += ",boot.netif.gateway="
extra += ",vfs.root.mountfrom=ufs:/dev/xbd0a"
extra += ",boot_verbose=yes"

I've put the mdroot image on a devicemapper device, /dev/munkyII/vm-XXVIII.
This domain boots fine, although I do get this kind of log message to
the console after a while:

Expensive timeout(9) function: 0xc008c730(0) 0.010000091 s

and the domain chews through CPU time as indicated by 'xm list' even when
apparently idle. I haven't played much beyond that though.
