Thanks for the testing!

You will have to setup a serial console in order to get the output
from Xen and early Linux boot, without that it's going to be almost
impossible to debug any issues.

That aside, in order to test PVH Dom0 you will have to use the xen.git
staging branch. Xen 4.11 is still missing some required patches for
Dom0 support which are now committed to staging.

If you build 4.11 by yourself building staging should be no different.
If you still see issues with staging, please paste the full serial
log of Xen + Dom0 booting.
