Hello, sorry for the late response, but now I'm back from vacation and did some new tests.
I installed a new VM using the FreeBSD-11.0-ALPHA6-amd64-20160701-r302303-disc1.iso, then updated to HEAD r303908 and installed xe-guest-utilities-6.2.0_2 from HEAD ports r420055. Xenguest_enable="YES" is set in /etc/rc.conf. I tested VM migration from XenCenter (XenMotion). There are no more time issues after migration. I did 4 migrations and at 2 migrations I noticed the following problems: When the migration finishes then the VM console switches to the VGA BIOS screen (Plex86/Bochs VGABios ...), the VM console freezes, the VM is not reachable over network and in XenCenter I see the first 2 CPU's raising up to 100 percent. Screenshots attached. Then after 10 minutes the CPU usage goes down, the VM console is responsive again and the machine is reachable over network.
