Identifying which of those 4 options is responsible will be useful I
think, (my money is on "VT for Direct I/O", just a gut feeling).

Having done that I think I would recommend posting to the xen-devel
list. Your reports here are pretty comprehensive but you might find the
lists in http://wiki.xen.org/wiki/Reporting_Bugs_against_Xen throw up
something else which might be useful.

In particular if the system is rebooting then getting the Xen (in
addition to the dom0) dmesg would be useful. You might find it helpful
to add noreboot to your hypervisor command line and/or to configure a
serial console (http://wiki.xen.org/wiki/Xen_Serial_Console).
