not exactly the solution you're seeking, but have you tried to do PXE without 

i mean, since dom0 is supposed to do VERY little work besides xend, you can 
create a cramfs initrd with all you need and get that via TFTP at bootup; no 
need for NFSroot on dom0.

i do that for some small servers, accessible only via SSH, SCP and thttp (no 
Xen... yet)
