 This is a trim of what I think is relevant, the first lines correspond
 to the last known values of prod and cons before the corruption, and the
 rest is quite self explanatory:
 xenbus_xs (process_msg:763) xb_read hdr 0.
 xb_read: cons: 3470 prod: 3473
 Finished read of 3 bytes (0 to go)
 xenbus_xs (process_msg:776) xb_read body 0.
 xenbus_xs (process_msg:811) process_msg: type 7 body OK.
 xenbus_xs (read_reply:134) read_reply: type 7 body OK.
 xenbus_xs (xs_talkv:224) read done.
 xb_read: cons: 2403996137 prod: 3531897424
 xb_read EIO
 xenbus_xs (process_msg:763) xb_read hdr 5.
 panic: XENBUS error 5 while reading message
 cpu0: Begin traceback...
 printf_nolog() at netbsd:printf_nolog
 xenbus_thread() at netbsd:xenbus_thread+0x140
