Lets stick with xen-unstable (aka 4.4-pre) latest for now rather than
jumping around the versions.

Kernel 3.11 or 3.9 should be fine, I'd be inclined to go for the later

This is an x86ism which has leaked into ARM, there should be no qemu at
all. I think this ought to be harmless.

FYI it is a lot easier for everyone if you just paste the whole thing
into email...

I see you have used "xl -vvv create <cfg> -c". Although I think it isn't
hurting for now please drop the "-c" to avoid confusion at this stage.
If things were working it would autoconnect the console,  but it would
have to be before <cfg> to work, I think.

I can't see anything untoward in your log, it seems to think it has
started the domain OK but by the time you run xl list it has gone.

There should be other logs under /var/log/xen/*domU* -- please can you
post them, they may give a clue.

You could also try "xl -vvv create -F <cfg>" which will cause xl to stay
in the foreground and perhaps let you see more logs.

> So I'm not sure how can I see the domU console?

xl list shows that the domain isn't even running, so you can't.

Once it is the "xl console <domain>" will work. So would "xl create -c
<cfg>" (but as mentioned above not "xl create <cfg> -c", I don't think).
