I don't know. I only got the fully working dom0 kernel today. Previous
ones that I use (both pv_ops and Suse's kernel-xen 2.6.32) has serius
bugs (for me anyway) with blktap2. Ask me later in several weeks :D

3.4.2 + RHEL's kernel-xen has been great so far. It helps fixing some
issues (like opensolaris PV domU). If you only run LInux PV/Windows
HVM domUs, and don't need newer features, I'd say stick with RHEL's
bundled version of Xen.

I'd actually consider moving some servers to Xen 4 when it reaches
4.0.1 or 4.1 :D
That, coupled with blktap2 + zfs-fuse, would be great.
