I've been looking at anti-virus software for Xen use on Linux systems, on both Dom0 and DomU, in industrial environments. Reviewing documentation on various packages seems to show that all the commercial ones insist on sticking kernel modules into a limited set of standard known kernels. This of course creates some serious risks until the anti-virus packages are developed in and tested in Xen environments, especially for para-virtualized environments.

Has anyone out there been using any such commercial packages? Or am I stuck with tools like ClamAV to avoid complicating my life with unfortunate kernel interactions?
