The XENHVM config, if I'm not mistaken, is pretty well only supported when
using an amd64 version of FreeBSD. Also, it will require some slight changes
to the config file. Specifically, the line "vif = [ 'type=ioemu,bridge=eth0'
]" from the config file I posted earlier would have to be changed to "vif =
[ 'bridge=eth0' ]", because you aren't emulating an re NIC any longer. The
XENHVM kernel is an HVM style kernel but it loads paravirtualized NIC
drivers (same with the block devices as well).

Who is your provider that is using 3.3.1?
