The actual kernel binary that gets installed when using
linux-image-virtual on 32-bit Karmic is -generic-pae.
Up to Jaunty it was -server.
AFAICT the 32-bit -generic kernels never had DomU support compiled in,
while the -server kernels did.
OTOH, the 64-bit Karmic -generic kernel comes with DomU support enabled.


To me, it seems that Ubuntu doesn't really care about Xen.
