Xen Virtual Disk I/O Errors

I just encountered this while making a tar backup on one of my virtual filesystems:

lost page write due to I/O error on xvdb1
end_request: I/O error, dev xvdb1, sector 33707688
Buffer I/O error on device xvdb1, logical block 4213461

Unfortunately, my fs suffered corruption.

Some folks, particularly Ubuntu users with kernel 3.2.x seem to say the answer is adding

barrier=0

to your ext3/ext4 mount options.

Be sure to check your dom0′s dmesg.

UPDATE Uhh yeah, something actually managed to overflow the dom0′s fs. >.> This is what I was getting in the dom0 dmesg:

loop: Write error at byte offset 17820364800, length 4096.

for which there is very little discussion, but a quick df told me what was going on.
