If i remember correctly you'll also need to update xen-libs and qemu in 
order to use virtio disks. Since libvirt does not correctly passes the 
argument to qemu. Instead of disk=...,if=virtio it passes 
disk=...,if=none. With older versions of qemu (< 0.15.x) this will lead 
to non booting vm's when using virtio.
