I cheated and ran Xen under KVM with the virtio-pci device provided by
QEMU.   If you have virtme
(https://git.kernel.org/cgit/utils/kernel/virtme/virtme.git/), you can

virtme-run --kdir=. --pwd --xen xen-4.5.2 --qemu-opts -smp 3 -m 1024

where xen-4.5.2 is the gunzipped Xen binary.  (Other versions work, too.)
