So, there's a meta-point here: we currently 'require' Beta releases to
boot as guests on Xen hosts:

"The release must boot successfully as a virtual guest in a situation
where the virtual host is running a supported Xen implementation"

I really don't have much knowledge of Xen and haven't followed this
discussion closely, but do any currently-known bugs prevent this? If so,
please flag them up so they can be considered as Beta blockers...thanks!
