I found three issues with 2.6.30-rc3-tip (xen-tip/master):
 - if you don't have CONFIG_HIBERNATION set it hangs at startup on the VGA init 
code (right after "about to get started").  I played
   with turning CONFIG_SWAP off, which in turn unselects _HIBERNATION off.
 - if you set CONFIG_STACKPROTECTOR=y you get a nice big page fault right at 
the startup (doesn't even get to 'about to get started' message).
 - poweroff doesn't turn the machine off (but I haven't verified whether the 
machine normally powers off with a non-Xen 2.6.30-rc3-tip kernel
   so this might be an operator errro).
