I have a nicely working FreeBSD image now, that seems stable enough
for production use.
The one thing I couldn't find out was how to make it shut down upon xm
shutdown <domid> as this would be required to ensure the vm will be
gracefully shutdown if some issue occurs in the host...
Has one of you solved that and is there any documentation to it?

Using amd64, using Xen PV disk and network drivers
It's somewhat telling that the final hints about PV drivers came from
someone over at webhostingtalk.com. I see some overhead from HVM
instead of PV, but I opt a working & fast system over the last 2% of
the purpose of libvirt is to provide an abstraction layer hiding all
xen features added since 2006 until they were finally understood and
copied by the kvm devs.
