http://dl.bytesex.org/patches/linux-xen-12/series is the apply
order of the patches (on top of vanilla 2.6.11).  You should
apply all patches, except the "hypercall" patch.  The hypercall
changes are not merged yet and will be done in a different way
(see recent discussions on the list).

Without hypercall changes you can't use memory above 4 GB, so
there is no point (yet) in using PAE, except for testing and
bughunting ;)

Could be the missing "shared-pmd" patch.
