I'm using a modified version of the OpenSUSE kernel on both
without issue (with Hardy and Intrepid). My configs:

64 bit HV, 32 bit PAE dom 0, mixed 32/64 guests (working fine)
32 bit HV, 32 bit PAE dom 0, 32 bit guests (working fine)
64 bit HV, 64 bit dom 0, mixed 32/64 bit guests (almost working fine,
time still goes backwards even with jiffies)

This is the same with both HV versions, plus xen-unstable.

So, unless you have ram beyond the reach of PAE .. I recommend
installing a 32 bit dom-0, 64 bit HV and 32 bit PAE dom-0 kernel ..
while waiting for dom-0 ops in mainline.

I hope to have the kernels out this week via hg/git, even if still buggy
with a 64 bit dom-0. I'm using this as a stop-gap only, while waiting.
