Having the bootlog from a native build of would be useful to
compare against the

When running native linux, what driver is used for the SATA controller?
Are you sure its actually compiled in to our -xen0 config?

Incidently, have you tried using the -xen kerenel plus modules that are
in our -unstable install tar ball?  This is the kernel that end-users
are intended to use: -xen0/-xenU are just for developers' convenience
(fewer modules, faster to build).
