This seems to have broken xen.  It now boots the xen2 hypervisor, loads
the NetBSD-current kernel for domain 0, and gets through the boot process

wsdisplay0: screen 0-3 added (80x25, vt100 emulation)
Xen clock: using event channel 12

then hangs forever.  There are no messages about timecounters at all.
