Are you trying to load test.elf or test.bin?

A test.bin would need to have a Linux zImage header on the front to be
loaded successfully.
or it may be easier to look at either xen/arch/arm/arm32/head.S or

I honestly don't recall if the userspace domain build supports ELF files
-- it should be obvious from the "xl -vvv create" logging if it is at
least trying (would be useful to see that more verbose logging BTW)
