You mean a dom0 kernel package update? As opposed to guest I mean.

What versions of xen+kernel do you have in dom0? and which kernel in the
guest? (Knowing the working/non-working version of whichever one changed
when the breakage occurred would be useful too)

I've just done a squeeze domU install on a wheezy dom0 which was freshly
installed this morning and pvhvm appears to be working ok.

Are you able to capture a guest console log, there may be some hints in
together with serial='pty' in your guest config and
config=ttyS0,115200n8 on your guest command line might help.

What do your guest configurations look like?
