This looks like the bug where Xen doesn't filter out the xsave feature
flag and the kernel tries to use it, fixed in change ef7616ff29ad. 
Kernel change  e826fe1ba15 works around the Xen bug by doing its own
masking (I think it got into 2.6.30).

There's also a "noxsave" kernel parameter, but that may have been added
after 2.6.29.
