Do you have a reason to move to 2.6.38? What functionality are you seeking?
Debian Squeeze + Xen 4.0.1 + 2.6.32 stock is very stable and fast.

If you can describe what you are trying to achieve I might be able to

simple enough is Debian/Kubuntu, XEN 4.1 and KDE 4.6 on a laptop so i can load guests while on the road
and continue developing, Id like to be on a later kernel, i figure if i can get 2.6.38/39 and a running config
ill not need any upgrades/updates.
