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
able to boot Xen for many years. You should have a look here:
http://wiki.netbsd.org/ports/xen/ and here:
http://wiki.netbsd.org/ports/xen/howto/ . This is from my development
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.
