It seems that 20_linux_xen have broken support for detecting genkernel initrd images with name including arch, i.e. initramfs-genkernel-x86_64-3.5.7-gentoo-xen. GENKERNEL_ARCH variable is not initialized properly because $machine is not loaded.

The fix is to add

>> machine=`uname -m`

just before

>> case "$machine" in

as in conf.d/10_linux so that variable is properly initialized thus allowing GENKERNEL_ARCH to be initialized later.
