Re: [Xen-devel] Running android on Dom U. on ARM Cubieboard2.

Android is basically a GUI/middle layer over and above Linux kernel
with some additional, android specific, kernel level patches.

Most of the latest androids run on Linux kernel version 3.4 while Xen
support for ARM was made upstream from v 3.7.

So to run Xen on Android, I will need to port android specific changes
to kernel v3.7 or later.

Got the clarity after reading further. Sorry for making noise with my
query which could have been answered with further more exploration.
