What versions of Xen and kernel (dom0 and domU) does this imply?

How is this device made available to both hosts? Is it LVM on ISCSI or

I presume you mean scp ubuntu.chk?

Yes, you can, but the kernel has crashed.

Your init process has been killed by an illegal instruction error.

Are the processors on both hosts the same?

It might be useful to setup console logging for guests as described in
in order to capture the full report of what happened. It would also be
useful to add "debug" to your domU command line and remove and existing
"quiet" lines.

Did you check the xen dmesg log?
