Um, well, lets take one thing at a time.

a). What is the version of Dom0? Are you swapping that out? If so, and you
want the latests then the next step is to do:

cd xen
git merge origin/devel/xen-pciback-0.6.1

b). If you just want to use the later version of a kernel for DomU, you don't
need the xen pciback. You need the xen pcifront - which has some bug-fixes in 
So you can:

cd xen
git checkout v2.6.39

c). If you want to see if the fault here lies in the bounce buffer being used 
often in the DomU b/c you have 8GB of memory now and you end up using more pages
past 4GB (in DomU), I can cook up a patch to figure this out. But an easier way 
to just do (on the Xen hypervisor line): mem=4G and that will make think you 
only have
4GB of physical RAM.  If the load comes back to the normal "amount" then the 
culprit is that and we can think on how to fix this.
