[CentOS-virt] Megacli issue with Xen PERC 5/i Poweredge 2950 II

I am having an issue with Megacli when adding or removing virtual 
disks.  I will post a link to fpaste that has the issue shown.

In brief whenever i add, or remove, a virtual disk via MegaCli the 
attempt succeeds and the adapter is configured but the OS remounts dm-0 
in read only.  dm-0 is my root lv.  This issue does not happen if i boot 
into the default, non Xen, CentOS kernel.  On stock CentOS kernel i can 
add and remove VD's all day without any issue at all. ONLY happens while 
booted up with the Xen kernel.

I have been racking my brain trying to figure this out.  Any help is 

My system:

Dell Poweredge 2950 II
PERC 5/i Controller

CentOS 6.7
Xen Version: 4.4.3-1.el6
