With xen 4.1 the block devices are backed by qemu-dm.
The kernel xbdback driver continues to work but conflicts with qemu-dm.

If qemu-dm or xbdback driver is used depends on who wins the race.

If you run a DIAGNOSTIC kernel you will see the kernel panicing in

You don't see this problem when you start the HVM guest with xl since
the xbdback driver isn't used at all.
