Though I couldn't repro the general problems I was having - I later did
a clean F14 install with no problems. So I don't really know what's
going on here; I might try another F16 hvm install to see how it goes.
But there is a bona-fide bug that F16 doesn't include xen-platform-pci
by default in its initramfs, so it ends up unplugging its emulated
devices without discovering the PV ones to replace them...

boot in an hvm domain (it hangs when setting up interrupts in the nested
xen mailing list
