At this point I don't really have a clear idea of how to progress,
comparing my implementation side-by-side with the original PV Mini-OS-based

AFAICT the OCaml code I've also not changed in any material way, and that has been running in production on PV for years, so I'd be inclined to think
the problem is in my reimplementation of the C parts, but where...?

A good start would be to print the ISR and IRR lapic registers when
blocked, to assert there are no pending vectors there.

Can you apply the following patch to your Xen, rebuild and check the
output of the 'l' debug key?

Also add the output of the 'v' key.

Had to fight the Xen Debian packages a bit as I wanted to patch the exact same Xen (there are some failures when building on a system that has Xen installed due to following symlinks when fixing shebangs).

Here you go, when stuck during netfront setup, after allocating its event channel, presumably waiting on Xenstore:

RIP 0x209997 is the 'hlt' instruction in mirage_xen_evtchn_block_domain() so we are indeed blocking waiting for events to show up.
