I'd be very surprised if this was a Xen issue rather than a
configuration problem.

I suspect Xen boots fine, starts dom0, but then dom0 bails,
probably because it can't mount root or such like. 

If you boot xen with the 'noreboot' cmdline option you'll get a
chance to read why dom0 is exiting.

First, make sure your xen and vmlinuz-xen images are built from
the same repo version.
