This is the bug discussed
http://marc.info/?l=linux-kernel&m=121912581909992&w=2 and eventually
The fix is in the Debian kernel svn repository but hasn't yet been
I didn't expect that this bug would impact non-graphical Xen
installation (which isn't supported yet but I was playing with it) but
it seems like it does fail even in the text-mode over vfb scenario.
If you remove the vfb from your guest configuration and install over the
hvc console it ought to work. The Xen images don't currently support
graphical install mode anyhow so there's no real loss. Once the guest is
installed vfb seems to work again in text mode although I'm sure there
are plenty of things you can do to trigger the crash (anything which
mmap()s /dev/fb0 will cause it I think).
The underlying bug will be fixed once the kernel is uploaded and finds
its way into a d-i image.
Thanks for you report.
