      I'm pretty sure that somebody previously mentioned that Xen
 requires multiboot.  I've haven't read your entire message, but
 unfortunately it appears that you have spent a lot of time on this
 for naught.  Our native bootloader can do multiboot and has been

 menu=Boot Xen with 6GB for dom0:load /netbsd.xen0 console=pc;multiboot /xen45-kernel/xen.gz dom0_mem=6GB dom0_max_vcpus=1 dom0_vcpus_pin
 The "load" part is what does module loading (in this case, the
 NetBSD kernel which is built as a Xen module) and the "multiboot"
 part is what boots the Xen kernel.  Note that since it is my
 development box, I have many different variants of this line.
