Otherwise if you need to make a standardized test, use the following conditions:
- xm create -n still works
- pygrub (externally called) can extract vm kernel
- when the vm is created, the xenstore should have some keys that prove it is PV
- inside the vm, you'll need you disk & network & console drivers too.

Also it's worthy to test if the varios hotput features work (adding
vcpu, mem-set).
Each distro comes with it's own set of bugs in the pv kernel.


the purpose of libvirt is to provide an abstraction layer hiding all
xen features added since 2006 until they were finally understood and
copied by the kvm devs.
