Status of FreeBSD/Xen?

Hi, folks!

>From the sparse documentation I was able to find, it seems
like Xen support was planned for 6.1-RELEASE.

"dom0/domU i386 support will be part of FreeBSD 6.1
 (Jan 30 / Mar 20 freeze / release)"

Is this true? A quick check on a system cvsup'ed to RELENG_6
did not look promising:

# cd /usr/src/sys
# laphroaig# find . -name '*xen*'

Or isn't there supposed to be a separate i386-xeno directory
somewhere in the source tree? Maybe it's part of i386?
Sorry, but I spent quite some time with Google and some hints
on how to get started would be great. Of course I can try
-CURRENT, if necessary for Xen.
