My bad then, sorry for that. Can you try to enable blktap only, and
disable blktap2 again? Also I haven't tested xend, so I don't know if it
will work without any patches (I think it should, but I'm not sure). We
can also try to strip blktap dependencies from xend, since it's not used
in NetBSD, but I'm not sure how hard that is.
