   Removing the assert prevents the panic and thus the machine boots.
However I believe the assert was there for a reason, wouldn't it break
somewhere else?

   OTOH, I see the machine has problems handling the interruption from
all devices. I see watchdog timeouts from the mpt controller, usb, and
network. Even shutting down the machine via ACPI fails (I had to unplug
the two PS to shut it down). Probably related with the iommu=no-intremap
in the xen_cmdline, isn't it?

   Btw, the laptop dom0 domain now boots just fine with xen. It was a
pekbac (sorry for the noise on that).

   Oh, the problem was minicom in the middle. With cu it does work.
Thank you.
