Hmm, if you use Xorg, you will not see if a panic() happens behind (unless
you have a serial connected to the machine). Is it possible for you to test
again, this time from console?
See if you suspicious behaviour (very high rates for xbd*) for
interrupts/event channels before and after launching domUs ($ vmstat -i).
I think that it is not xbd/xennet related; start a few domU without any
xbd/xennet attached to it (use INSTALL kernels to boot for example), and
report vmstat -i output.
