I have a very similar setup. Just got my second server updated and added
to ocfs2 cluster. 

SLES10 SP2, xen-3.2.0_16718_18-0.3, Kernel
Tested Windows 2k3 HVM
GPL PV version 0.9.11
Shared storage on OCFS2, using files for domU hard drive

Couldn't wait to try a migration. Same thing. Locked up the domU. 100%
CPU in the domU. Did you make any progress?

I haven't tried a sles domU yet.
