Hmm, are barriers somehow being turned on? (They shouldn't). It would
be helpfull if you included the error logs.

So using the older Dom0. Are there any errors/warnings reported by
the frontend? Is there a difference in the dmesg output from the DomU
booted on 2.6.34 vs 3.0?

that is pretty much how I've it too. Well:

disk = [ 'phy:/dev/vg_guest_1/data-xfs,xvda,w', 
'phy:/dev/vg_guest_1/data-swap ,xvdd,w']

I don't try to put disks as partitions. Let me try that. Are the sizes
that xne-blkfront report the same?

Ah, hadn't tried LUKS. What happens if they are _not_ on LUKS?
Let me set up LUKs on my box in the meantime.

Can you boot it with 'earlyprintk=xenboot debug loglevel=10' please?
Are you using a special version of .config? Is it available somewhere?
