As you've observed this will use qdisk not blktap. I suspect your issue
is lack of a qemu process running in dom0 to service the qdisk requests.
See https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=770456 .

If you want blktap2 for real then you will need to force the backend

I don't think that is possible with the deprecated syntax you are using.
According to
something like:
Should do the trick (nb, target= must be last).

For debugging it can be useful to do "xl -N block-attach 0 <diskspec>",
this is just a dry-run block attach to dom0, which will print the parsed
version of the spec
