Have you enabled event delivery? Look in the Mini-OS source kernel.c
and os.h, where "__sti" is defined:

#define __sti()                                                         \
do {                                                                    \
        vcpu_info_t *_vcpu;                                             \
        barrier();                                                      \
        _vcpu = &HYPERVISOR_shared_info->vcpu_info[smp_processor_id()]; \
        _vcpu->evtchn_upcall_mask = 0;                                  \
        barrier(); /* unmask then check (avoid races) */                \
        if ( unlikely(_vcpu->evtchn_upcall_pending) )                   \
                force_evtchn_callback();                                \
} while (0)

the events should be masked on startup I think, so maybe that's your
