What i forgot was the cmdline for the xen hypervisor (not that important 

watchdog dom0_mem=4096M dom0_max_vcpus=4 dom0_vcpus_pin 

it turned out to be a good idea to pin the vcpus not while running (with xl 
vcpu-pin) but as early as possible -  that way even a "make -j99 bzImage" 
within Dom0 doesnt really affect the DomU Performance (yes, otherwise i had the 
impression it was noticable)

Greetings again!
