What are you trying to run the drivers on, XCP or stock xen-unstable/3.4?

If the latter, I believe there are a couple of minor protocol differences that 
may cause problems. XCP should work fine. The protocol differences look like 
useful improvements so it should be possible to get them upstreamed in some 
backward compatible fashion over the next few weeks.

In the meantime, if you're using xen-unstable/3.4 it might be worth trying the 

Create the key
HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\xevtchn\Parameters, and then create a 
DWORD value called SetFlags in there and set it to 0x10000000.  

I haven't verified this works but it should get further.
