for me, 'xm create' complains with:
borneo:/usr/pkg/share/examples/xen#xm create nb1
Using config file "/usr/pkg/etc/xen/nb1".
Error: need more than 1 value to unpack

looks like a python error, maybe something in the domU config file,
but I don't even know at what to look. no domU is started.

As i understood it, backend drivers have moved to userland (in qemu-dm)
even for PV guests.
