I also tried to remove udev and leave hotplug, and it did not work.
But it was maybe me.

If I did not tweak the prerm script, the upgrade cannot happen since the
prerm script fails.
invoke xend stop
invoke xendomains stop
that fails, I think we know why :-)

Yes, if a post/pre rm/inst script fails, apt stops.

It can be checked in python.
Or we can also make "xend start failure" non fatal with something like:
invoke xend start || true
(We should check policy on that sorts of ugly things :-)

For the record, I solved it by booting the xen hypervizor with noapic
and acpi=off options, and after that I had a UDP checksum error, so I
turned off tx checksum (ethtool -K eth0 tx off). :-/
