The CPU of the Allwinner R8 is an ARM Cortex-A8, so the question transits
to the Xen support for Cortex-A8.  Btw, is there a list somewhere that
summarises the Xen support for the various ARM processors?  Most SBCs
these days are based on Cortex-A7 (low-end ones line the RPi2), Cortex-A9
(mid-end ones like the Cubox-i family or Radxa Rock Pro), or Cortex-A15
or even Cortex-A17 (for higher-end ones like the Radxa 2).  I think the
A7 and A17 work with Xen, but not the other ones (but I may be wrong).
