I've just tested & can confirm same behaviour is happening for me - physical
CPU is always zero.

Upstream development completely broke all the Dom0 hypercalls just
prior to Xen 3.0.3, so we had to re-write large chunks of this code
in libvirt to be able to work with 3.0.3 (and still maintain compatability
with older 3.0.2 & 3.0.1). I guess we got the VCPU bit slightly wrong
when running on 3.0.3 hypervisor.
