Use xenstore.  Take a look at linux-2.6-xen-sparse/drivers/xen/core/reboot.c
which does exactly what you're looking for.  The domU kernel module watches
the appropriate path in the store, and then dom0 (in this case the tools, but
equally easily the dom0 kernel) writes the message into that path, and the
domU kernel watch is fired.
