A couple of things:
- You probably should open a bug with Novell/openSuSE on this issue.  The Xen 
version that gets packaged with openSuSE is nowhere near the vanilla Xen 
version included on the site - it's very heavily patched by the Novell/openSuSE 
developers.  So, any regressions in the package need to be reported to those 
developers.  When you say Original Xen 4.0, do you mean the vanilla version, 
from xen.org, or do you mean the original openSuSE 11.3 version?
- The openSuSE 11.3 kernel has been updated via the 11.3 Updates channel, and 
now works for booting Xen machines.  So, unless you have some reason for using 
KOTD, I'd go back to the officially released version, as KOTD is likely to be 
somewhat unstable and subject to change/development.  I'm assuming you were 
using KOTD because of the bug in the kernel in the original 11.3 release that 
kept a domU from booting more than once without rebooting your dom0?
