Yes, Xen's debugging and error handling is a bit, say "simple" at best.

I mean the acpi value in the domU config and the acpi=off and noapic
settings on the grub command line for dom0.

No, there's a 3.0.4 version of Xenoppix, IIRC, at least 3.0.3.

That you need a newer dom0 kernel then is another problem. But very
first, checlk if with a different Xen implementation it works or not.
If it also not works with xenoppix, you might have not 100% correctly
working hardware, a faulty bios or something.
These things make it hard to run hvm domains and others.

I didn't say it''s not supported, only that I didn't try. If it's not
supported and doesn't work, then it's likely that it's even unstallable.
