Can you post your kernel's .config? I think you must have support for
ext3 as modular, and you forgot to include the module 'ext3' in your
initrd, however I can't be sure without looking at it.

Try booting to a non-xen kernel and upload your config somewhere that we
can see it with a browser or wget, please don't post it to the list as
my mail client will just clobber it :)
