I've given up asking 'why' when it comes to xen. Just keep poking
around different hypervisors, kernels, options, etc. until you find
some combination that works, and don't expect to work on a different
machine or survive an upgrade.

In this case I got an error message, googled it, it said use that
option, and it fixed it. If it doesn't, rinse and repeat.
