Yes, using the ports (xen-kernel/xen-tools) is the recommended way, I 
should update the wiki page in order to note this.

I've just noticied this issue, it's probably due to an issue with kernel 
linking. It seems like the physical address specified in the ELF program 
headers is wrong. I'm currently trying to bisect it in order to find the 
commit that caused it, in the meantime I can confirm that r295683 and 
older revisions should work fine.

Just to confirm, can you paste the output of the following command:

$ readelf -l /boot/kernel/kernel

With the non-working kernel?

Thanks, Roger.
