When I start a new domain using an nbd exported device into domain0,
xenlinux Oops and crashes.  Nbd otherwise works fine in domain0 I
can mount filesystems on it, dd them all, export them from domain0
to a new domain via nfs from domain0 also works.

This is easily reproducable, with somthing like

disk = [ 'phy:/dev/xen-uml0,sda1,w' ]

Where xen-uml0 is the nbd exported device.

With Changeset 1.1063  Xen crashes at start up only displaying the
figlet banner + (Xen) Unknown Interrupt.
