Yes I compiled 3.2.18 - following Debian instructions with the debian
sources.  The only reason I compiled the kernel is that pciback is a
module in the default kernel and loads xen-pciback.hide too late for
hiding the video card from Dom0.   Believe me, If I could get away
with not compiling the kernel that would be my preference.
That is what I referred to as "particular reason". So, you have one, the pain is justified (:

The errors where not from the installation of xen-qemu-dm they
happened on subsequent boots. (Same kernel panic )
Oh. I understood that during install something went wrong and you saw errors. As it's not so, forget about package manager logs.

 And because this
has to be a HVM machine, I have to use xen-qemu-dm until Debian moves
to the newer version where it's not required and this makes it so that
no matter what kernel I use - I will be running into the problem of
the kernel panic error message.
Well, the error start to appear aster xen-qemu-dm was installed, so I suspect the installation of the package triggered some condition. I'm really curious about how it happened, but it seems that it has little to do with the solution.

In a neighbor branch of this thread Ian suggested that bz2 compression was the difference between working an broken. I would consider to re-build the custom kernel, making sure it's compressed in a closest to the default way. I think re-building the kernel is a better documented option, than re-compiling Xen. That way you can get a reproducible stable setup.

don't understand why it's only on this hardware I have the issue.)
Missed that until now, sorry. Are you super-double-sure that you are using the same boot files on different hardware, with different results? md5sum can help to make file comparison. Generally, bz2 compression is little bit more stressful for the CPU than gzip, but it sounds too exotic to make the difference.
