Let's turn this around a bit. Can we get Xen to keep a rock solid stable 
ABI?  Where the interface to Xen from Dom0 is never expected to break? All 
old Dom0's will always work on Xen?

Document this interface, and that it will always work. If it is a clean 
interface, then perhaps Linux could work with it. But it would need to be 
non intrusive. I'll have to take some time to look at the Dom0 patches to 
see what exactly it requires. Perhaps there's better ways to accomplish 
what is being asked for.
