|I removed 'xenfs' entry from /etc/fstab and it brought back to life Xen 3.4.1 (via xen-3.4.1-4.src.rpm) & Libvirt on the first F11 box, and didn't help on the second.|
I would guess it's xen&pvops unrelated issue on second box.

Hmm, where does that one come from?
It should not be there, it is not needed.
The xen packages never ever touch /etc/fstab.

Both F11 (3.3.x) and F12 (3.4.x) xen packages mount the filesystem automatically. Very early xen packages with pv_ops kernel support didn't do that though, so maybe the /etc/fstab entry was added manually back then and was never deleted?
