Are you passing through any pci devices? The main driver (xenpci -
although it is nothing to do with pci passthrough) creates a device node
for everything under the devices key in xenstore and so it creates a
node for a pci passthrough device even though there is no driver for it.

I don't think that is normal. I see activity on my systems when using

Definitely sounds like something is wrong there... are you running the
debug build of the drivers? If so, things are logged to
/var/log/xen/qemu-dm-<domu name>.log. If too much is logged then qemu
tends to throttle the domu which could do things like you describe.

Have a look in the /var/log/xen/qemu-dm-<domu name>.log file and see if
it is getting a lot of information logged to it.
