I've had a similar issue on x86_64 using a subset of the openSUSE forward
ported dom0 kernel patches on 2.6.32, when portage upgraded udev to 154
starting a vm resulted in a very similar null pointer dereference and
eventually xm create timed out and a error was logged about vif device failure.

Downgrading udev fixed the problem.
