[Buildroot] I: Configure buildroot for xen

I try to choose qemu_x86_defconfig how configuration for buildroot and I recompile all (with XEN support).
The error message is
VFS: Cannot open root device "xvda1" or unknown-block(0,0): error -6
Tks for help me..

Dear Luisa Posani,

rootfs.cpio and rootfs.tar generated by Buildroot contain the same
thing: the root filesystem generated by Buildroot.
I believe the xen-create-image --initrd option is to pass an initrd
that is not the root filesystem, such as what is done typically in
Linux distributions, where the initrd contains a temporary root
filesystem used to load the appropriate kernel modules and device
firmwares to make the system operate, before switching to the real root
So just get rid of --initrd=rootfs.cpio, I think it should work. It
will directly mount the ext3 filesystem as your root filesystem and
