I tried loading these modules without result, the datablock still does not

Anyway, if I change the deployment.0 to replace xvde by xvdc, so it looks like : 

name = 'one-1956-2'
memory  = '256'
kernel = '/usr/lib/xen-default/boot/hvmloader'
disk = [
vif = [
    ' mac=02:00:83:fe:cc:a3,ip=,bridge=eth0',
vfb = [ 'type=vnc' ]

Then it works, the disk is correctly detected ( as /dev/sdc ).

I tried many values, works for xvdc & xvdd, does not work for xvde and above
(always shown as sdc).
