[Xen-devel] Problems booting latest xen pv-ops linux kernel

I followed http://wiki.xensource.com/xenwiki/XenParavirtOps
to build a bleeding edge linux kernel with

  git clone git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/jeremy/xen.git 

I build the kernel for amd64 and installed Debians
xen-hypervisor-3.4-amd64 package and bootet. Xen comes up nicely and
starts the kernel. It detects my SATA disk (sata_sil driver) but then
fails to read block 0. Something in xen breaks the sata_sil driver.

Booting the kernel as bare-metal works fine.

Anyone an idea what is wrong? The wiki lists a few problems (e.g. on
32bit use CONFIG_HIGHPTE=n) but nothing for 64bit. Anything config
option known to have sideeffects?
