(forgive me if this should be sent to a Debian list since the problem might be Debian specific)

my server running xen 4.0.1 and Debian Squeeze (with all the xen 4.0.1 debian packages, everything installed using aptitude) was working fine for PV and HVM guest until an aptitude upgrade on Monday, and Ive been spending the last couple of days trying to figure this out:

- I boot my server and as long as a stick with PV guests Im fine, if I try to start a HVM guest, the HVM guest will not boot and /dev/xen/evtchn disappears, and any PV guest I start now will just take off with 100% CPU

in other words:
