Have you looked into eliloader?

This is in current XenServer systems and works about the same way you are 
looking for xenpvnetboot to work.

By causality I found a reference to "xenpvnetboot", which seems to solve my 
problem and is supported since a year ago, in Xen 4.2.


It's mentioned on http://www.linux.org.ru/news/opensource/8240913
(russian), but not on
http://blog.xen.org/index.php/2012/09/17/xen-4-2-0-released/ .

Debian package search engiene says it's included in xen-utils-4.2 under Sid:

By chance, does it works somehow under XCP or XenServer? I found no reference 
documentation yet.
