Fully PV FreeBSD kernel would be better but available PV drivers for HVM can 
still be useful (and might be an easier goal).

I don't think that FreeBSD 7 includes Xen support but there is a branch of the 
FreeBSD 7 tree available which has Xen support code in it.  This may not be 
up-to-date wrt to the mainline 7 tree, though.

The port actually worked, I think, but there was integration and cleanup work 
required to make it suitable for inclusion in mainline FreeBSD.  Last I 
heard, the project was stalled on that.  I think the project needs a new 
maintainer if it's going to get anywhere.
