As expected console output from udevd :-

Starting udev: udevd-work[591]: kernel-provided name 'pci_iomul' and NAME= 'xen/pci_iomul' disagree, please use SYMLINK+= or change the kernel to provide the proper name

udevd-work[539]: kernel-provided name 'evtchn' and NAME= 'xen/evtchn' disagree, please use SYMLINK+= or change the kernel to provide the proper name

This may be easily fixed via patch :-

and may be ignored , because seems harmless. Udev version 161.

  I would expect  same attempt under Xen 4.0.1 on top of Ubuntu 10.10 to have same
problem with xen-backend.rules, but i don't get any console warnings on Ubuntu 10.10
Udev version 163.
  But in both cases two lines have to be added to xen-backend.rules in case of XenLinux kernel under Xen 4.0.1 :-

+KERNEL=="gntdev", NAME="xen/%k"
+KERNELS=="xen", KERNEL=="xvd*", SUBSYSTEM=="block", OPTIONS+="last_rule"

  To create /dev/xen/gntdev device and put pygrub into working shape, at least via my experience.
   On the other side the most recent pvops kernel create two character device
no matter of xen-backend.rules file content.
