2.6.24 has support for running on Xen as a domU. So you do not need to apply
any patchset on the vanilla kernel. The work to let upstream kernel run as
dom0 is still in progress. Until then you have to use our 2.6.18 or,
preferably, a kernel provided by your distro. The kernel does not have to
specifically a '3.2 kernel' -- any reasonably modern Xen-patched kernel
should do.
