Which specific version of Xen are you running?

It looks to me as if your config should not need to start a device model
in the first place.

Do you have a version of Xen which has 23044:d4ca456c0c25 "libxl: do not
start a xenpv qemu solely for tap devices if blktap is available" in it?

I don't recall if the problem when this happened was a failure (such as
the above) or just a wasted process but it would be worth trying IMHO.

I thought that change was in xen-4.1-testing.hg but it looks like it

IanJ/Keir can we backport that one please?
