>From a FreeBSD (or guest in general) point of view, there's no notion of
multipath or the backing storage details in general, so I very much
doubt it has anything to do with FreeBSD. Are you only running Windows
and FreeBSD guests? Do you have the PV drivers installed on Windows guests?

Can you get the output of the VMs that automatically restart? Do they
crash and reboot or are they rebooted by xencenter?

It might be possible that XenServer does an unexpected virtual hard
drive state change when the multipath status changes and that this makes
FreeBSD crash, but without a ddb trace it's impossible to know.
