An update to this:

We decide to use Xen 3.4.3 Fedora 12 Dom0 with xenified Dom0 kernel.
Xen 3.4.3 works with more kinds of DomUs (F11, F12) while Xen 4.0.0
(and Xen 4.0.1) only works with newer version of kernel in F12.

This solution is tested to be stable. We run distributed parallel
experiments on it (usually 7 DomUs on one physical machine) and it
works well for us.

The "recommended" ones in http://pkill.info/b/2367/xen-solutions/ is
our solution by now. I will also maintain and update this post with
tested solution. Xen 3.4.3 + xenified kernel is quite solid
in our servers:
F12 Dom0: 
F12 DomU: 

Hope this info can help the others who want to set up Xen VMs on Fedora.
