Right, but Xen reboots on a dom0 kernel panic by default, which ends up
completely masking why the dom0 kernel paniced, as your screen blips off
immediately (or at least it does for me). :)

Keeping the message on the CRT that dom0 paniced because it couldn't find
the root block device would dispense with a lot of questions.
