So still trying to figure out what I'm doing wrong with LXC because I
just can't get any joy. So I'll go one issue at a time.

The following VM definition:
<domain type='lxc'>
  <name>testdeb</name>
  <uuid>df03b2ce-725a-42e2-39e4-d646be8facb3</uuid>
  <memory unit='KiB'>332768</memory>
  <currentMemory unit='KiB'>332768</currentMemory>
  <vcpu placement='static'>1</vcpu>
  <os>
    <type arch='x86_64'>exe</type>
    <init>/sbin/init</init>
  </os>
  <clock offset='utc'/>
  <on_poweroff>destroy</on_poweroff>
  <on_reboot>restart</on_reboot>
  <on_crash>destroy</on_crash>
  <devices>
    <emulator>/usr/libexec/libvirt_lxc</emulator>
    <filesystem type='block' accessmode='passthrough'>
      <source dev='/dev/mapper/vms-testdeb'/>
      <target dir='/'/>
    </filesystem>
    <interface type='network'>
      <mac address='52:54:00:95:d5:f2'/>
      <source network='default'/>
    </interface>
    <console type='pty'>
      <target type='lxc' port='0'/>
    </console>
  </devices>
</domain>

Results in /dev/mapper/vms-testdeb being mounted right over my host's
/ partition. Here's the output from mount:
rootfs on / type rootfs (rw)
/dev/sda3 on / type ext4 (rw,noatime,data=ordered)
udev on /dev type devtmpfs
(rw,nosuid,relatime,size=10240k,nr_inodes=497278,mode=755)
devpts on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,relatime,gid=5,mode=620,ptmxmode=000)
tmpfs on /run type tmpfs (rw,nosuid,nodev,relatime,mode=755)
/dev/mapper/vms-testdeb on / type ext4 (rw,relatime,data=ordered)
proc on /proc type proc (rw,nosuid,nodev,noexec,relatime)
proc on /proc/sys type proc (ro,relatime)
sysfs on /sys type sysfs (ro,relatime)
tmpfs on /sys/fs/cgroup type tmpfs
(rw,nosuid,nodev,noexec,relatime,size=64k,mode=755)
cgroup on /sys/fs/cgroup/cpuset type cgroup (rw,relatime,cpuset)
cgroup on /sys/fs/cgroup/cpu type cgroup (rw,relatime,cpu)
cgroup on /sys/fs/cgroup/cpuacct type cgroup (rw,relatime,cpuacct)
cgroup on /sys/fs/cgroup/memory type cgroup (rw,relatime,memory)
cgroup on /sys/fs/cgroup/devices type cgroup (rw,relatime,devices)
cgroup on /sys/fs/cgroup/freezer type cgroup (rw,relatime,freezer)
cgroup on /sys/fs/cgroup/blkio type cgroup (rw,relatime,blkio)
cgroup on /sys/fs/cgroup/net_prio type cgroup (rw,relatime,net_prio)
binfmt_misc on /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc type binfmt_misc
(rw,nodev,noexec,nosuid)

Now if I do the following:
# mkdir /mnt/testdeb
# mount /dev/mapper/vms-testdeb /mnt/testdeb

And change the definition to:

    <filesystem type='mount' accessmode='passthrough'>
      <source dir='/mnt/testdeb'/>
      <target dir='/'/>
    </filesystem>

It at least appears to work. The LXC domain boots but believes it only
has R/O access to its /.

As a side note, I created it with:
# mount /dev/mapper/vms-testdeb /mnt/testdeb
# debootstrap squeeze /mnt/testdeb
