I installed Fedora 16 and then ran:

Xen installed without errors and I rebooted. In the Grub2 list I selected
Xen 4.1.2 and then selected the option: 

Fedora Linux, with Xen 4.1.2 and Linux 3.3.0-4.fc16.x86_64

The boot process starts (i notice that loading ramdisk is very short) and
then shortly thereafter the boot fails and the system reboots without any
error. 

Recent F16 kernels are broken when running as dom0. 3.2.9-1 was the last kernel that worked. 3.2.9-2 was broken with Bug 802407
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=802407
though this is now fixed. Unfortunately everything after 3.2.9-4 is broken with Bug 804347
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=804347
though I did do a scratch build to try a proposed fix which is (temporarily) at
http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=3923761
which seems to work for me though there are weird things going on with the 3.3 kernels, see Bug 806107
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=806107
which might cause you problems with this kernel as well.
