Very strange.

I've just done a pull of xeno-unstable and 'make world', and it
boots fine for me, on two different machines.

The last significant checkin was 21h ago, so I don't think there
was a bad window. Please can you retry. Perhaps you tried booting
mis-matched xen and xenlinux?

I've not seen a spontaneous reboot or domain crash in ages, ever
since the netif backend bug that was fixed.

Please can you try and get a serial line on the box to see if any
messages come out. Any sign of an oops message on the domain's

Live migration got broken by NGIO and the new tools, but it only
needs a couple of minor tweaks and it'll probably be working by
the end of the week.
