  How about 'the entire codebase' as an answer ;-) There's no connection 
between the two and not being familiar with the current state of GPLPV I can't 
really compare and contrast at a functional level.

  Yes. The EULA allows them to be used on open source Xen. I've had them 
working myself on a private build of xen-unstable and a PVops dom0 kernel.

You may well get issues with older guest agents dying and re-spawning because 
of xenstore keys it expects to find and doesn't. I suggest using the package 
from the recent Sanibel hotfix, XS602E002. The drivers and guest agent therein 
should be fine on open source Xen and a PVops kernel although I have not tried 
them myself.
