Did you build your own Xen / XenLinux?

Have you built an initrd to go with this kernel?  It looks like ext2 is being 
used to mount an ext3 root filesystem for some reason; maybe ext3 needs to be 
built into the kernel (or included on an initrd) here?  That could account 
for the ext2_fill_super warning.

Have you tried including "console=xvc0" on the kernel commandline so that 
Linux knows to direct boot output to the Xen virtual console?
