Is the 64-bit dom0 kernel == 64-bit domu kernel?

no. dom0 is 126.96.36.199 (from xenbits pvops tree).

Did that. No use. Still same error.
FYI, this throws a warning
linux-2.6/drivers/rtc/rtc-cmos.c:1000: warning: ‘return’ with no value, in function returning non-void
Also do 'earlyprintk=xenboot' in your PV guest and see what it tells you
No extra messages in xen's log.
Just for the heck of it, I copied out an .config from a pvops domU (2.6.32)
and tweaked it a bit - basically disabling backend drivers, rtc, hpet_emulate_rtc.
I got this in console (xm create -c)

The errors on xen's side are still same. MFN mapping error as stated earlier.
xenctx also shows same output (error coming from pin_pagetable_pfn)
