You are doing it right.

Hmm, I wonder if this patch is in your tree:

commit 1aa61698354ca0582b07eb865e0432a13b459f11
Author: Ian Campbell <ian.campbell@xxxxxxxxxx>
Date:   Thu Dec 17 14:08:25 2009 +0000

    xen: fix hang on suspend.

and causing this (or maybe the pciback driver is the culprit and
the above patch exposes a bug?).

Try reverting that patch and seeing what happens. I the meantime let
me compile a new Dom0 with the above mentioned commit and see if I get
the failure too.
