With the instructions on Kip's site or the patch included with the xen 
sources, it's possible to build a functioning XenU kernel. (I have run it 
under NetBSD/Xen0 and Debian/Linux2.6/Xen0).

One limitation is that all patches have developed for 5.3-Release, and have 
not been recently updated.

I have found the FreeBSD/Xen0 very unstable : I had crashes under even 
moderate load, and I did not see how to add debugging DDB support (but I did 
not look very far)

Too bad : even just a Xen0 support would be fine (but Xen3 should make it 
possible to run an "untouched" FreeeBSD kernel on a DomU virtual machine)
