Indeed — this doesn’t look like a nested virt crash to me, since it has 
attached to netfront and is crashing quite late in boot.  I’ll see if I can 
reproduce it later, as I’m suspicious that this might be due to a change 
somewhere in newer Xen device models.  It’s hard to tell without a gdb 
backtrace for sure where it’s crashing.
