ok, the problem is the vbd_list in your .../xc12/netbsd config file:
phy:wd0i,sda1,w tells xc_dom_create.py to export wd0i as a scsi disk,
but bootdev=wd0a and /dev/wd0a expect an ide disk.  You should
change the vbd_list setting to: phy:wd0i,hda1,w

Maybe we should patch the tools to expect ide0/part0 or scsi0/part0
since that would be OS-independent and probably less confusing...
