I am unable to boot dom0 on a x86_64 (Pentium D dual core) machine
using xen-3.0-testing at changeset 8738 and linux-2.6-xen at
changeset 19827.  Booting dom0 using the latest xen hypervisor and
linux- seems to work.

Older guest on newer Xen should always work, but the same isn't true for newer guest on older Xen. linux-2.6-xen.hg tracks xen-unstable, so it's newer than 3.0-testing.

It ought to work when rolled back to a suitable version, or just use Linux 2.6.12 in the unstable repo.
