The kernel config I am using does have the line "CONFIG_XEN_NETDEV_LOOPBACK=y". I am not sure I understand what you meant by "prove it is compiled in and not a module".

so that we can migrate the VM. Does anyone know how to solve
this problem? or a workaround?

grep your kernel config for the following (and prove its compiled in and not a
