  >I also tried to boot the XENHVM kernel after I replaced "ada0" by 
 "ado" in /etc/fstab as suggested by Dave Scott >( 
 but also in this case the root device could not be mounted.
 The proper syntax is ad0, not ado.
 Seems like xenbus mapping hasn't yet followed the name change that 
 FreeBSD has made (adX->adaX). Hopefully, when this will be fixed, there 
 will be no need to make changes to fstab.
 By the way, the XENHVM config could be more optimized and exclude an 
 awful lot of unneeded hardware that GENERIC includes (e.g. wireless or 
 firewire, or many specific controllers).
 Best regards, Mike.
