Then you shoud at least trim the quoted part of the mail you're highjacking.

blktap2 was (AFAIK) never included in the main Linux Kernel.
For Debian you can install blktap-dkms which compiles the module for your 
current kernel.

If there's a Linux kernel traceback before that, you have the same problem as 
me which multiple devices overlapping each other.
Otherwise take a look at the debug output of Xend and all the other xen tools 
(In Debian: /var/log/xen/*)
At least provide your exact configuration, so people spending their time to 
help you have some useful facts.
