Actually RHEL5.3 has Xen hypervisor 3.1.2 + a lot of patches from redhat.

You can see that with "xm info".

The userspace Xen tools/utilities in RHEL5 are 3.0.3 (to keep the ABI/API 
stable in RHEL5 releases).

Or then you could try the latest Xen and dom0 kernel packages from RHEL 5.4 
there have been many updates/fixes..
