I'm not admin of Dom0, i've got only one vm (with PV enabled), which is
32 bit. I didn't try to start them with 64 bit kernel (and 32 bit
userland), do you think it's worth to try it?
I don't force barrier in fstab, on kernel hardened-2.6.36 (which doesn't
throws warnings), /proc/mounts shows barrier=1, there is in dmesg:
[    0.209834] Initialising Xen virtual ethernet driver.
[    0.217792] blkfront: xvda: barriers enabled (tag)

On vanilla-2.6.39-rc5-git7 i've got in log:
[    6.505772] blkfront: xvda: empty write barrier op failed
[    6.505776] blkfront: xvda: barriers disabled

(I hope i didn't omit important part from dmesg, i didn't want to paste
tons of line)
