This is the critical point. Is this the prepackaged kernel's initrd
image? If so, it would appear that it doesn't like the new kernel, and
doesn't want to play along.

Instead of loading an initrd from the wrong kernel, just add /dev/null
and /dev/console device nodes in the domU's root filesystem, comment out
the initrd, and then boot the domU. It should "just work" then.
