You can have NUMA enabled in your guest, but Xen does not export
something like a virtual SRAT table that your NUMA-aware guest could use
to determine if its memory and cpu were in two different nodes.

I don't know the current state of memory hotplug in Linux.

I don't believe supporting memory hotplug is related to NUMA.

SMP linux isn't related to memory hotplug either.
