I am running it with r301685 and the HVM guests have some trouble with
block devices.

SeaBIOS does not find /dev/zvol/zroot/freebsd1,raw,xvda,w to boot FreeBSD
from, after chaging to "hda" I get up to the kernel mountroot prompt
(Xen block devices seem to be detected in dmesg).

What used to be Windows 2016 domU with /dev/zvol/zroot/windows0,raw,hda,w
ends up in the Tianocore UEFI shell. Block devices seem to be available,
I can even list the fs0: partition, but no booting further possible.
