yup. the only difference was that I didn't touch dumU's kernel config; in
dom0 I already disabled the debugging flags (except magic sysreq), but in
default domU's config they were still enabled.

Overall impression from my newer benchmark experiments:

- Harddisk IO is about 30% faster in XenU than in vmware ws (both accessing
  the same raw partition)
- Network IO is at the same level in xenU and vmware, which is about 30%
  slower than dom0/native net io (netpipe, 2 machines using 1000Mbit ethernet
  connected via a switch, xenU and vmware bridged).
