Problem with Xen blktap in Squeeze

Hi all.

I had the same exact problem in Debian Lenny, which I asked about in Xen mailing list. It was solved simply by loading xenblktap and creating a symlink to tapdisk binary.
Anyway also now with Xen 4 and Debian Squeeze (6.0.5), I cann't get a DomU working with tap:aio or tap:tapdisk:aio (or ???). It just works with file: URI (loop driver) which AFAIK not good for production. 

"xm console alab1" just after "xm create alab1.cfg" : http://paste.debian.net/182363/
(It just hangs in XENBUS: Waiting for devices to initialise: 295s...290s...285s...)

tail -f /var/log/xen/* : http://paste.debian.net/182364/
