I think I would start by asking this on xen-users (CC'd) -- it seems
likely that this is a configuration issue between openstack and Xen,
and there's more expertise for that here than on xen-devel (where we
have more expertise about issues internal to Xen).

I would start by switching to the libxl libvirt driver and making sure
that libvirt works correctly on its own.
I would avoid virt-manager and test using virtsh instead.

If this configuration fails for you, what is the error that libxl
and/or libvirt reports?

Once you have a working libvirt+libxl setup then you might want to try
out OpenStack on top of it.
