Which port are you asking about?
http://wiki.xen.org/wiki/Xen_ARM_with_Virtualization_Extensions or
http://wiki.xen.org/wiki/Xen_ARM_%28PV%29 ? I only know about the former
and it sounds like this is the one you mean?

Adding xen-devel which is the right venue for virt extensions questions,
xen-arm@ is for the PV port.

For the hardware extensions port the interfaces are documented in
xen.git (xen/include/public/) and exposed via

I think it is mostly set in stone right now, although there is a pending
issue with Linux netfront/back possibly using a broken ABI due to struct
packing oddities. Other than that I don't expect there to be any further
changes before 4.4 (where I hope we can declare it frozen).
