What are you trying to achieve? What is your end goal?

In theory root inside a guest should be able to use /proc/xen/privcmd
via the libxenctrl library. However IIRC this was restricted to dom0
kernels until very recently.

A loadable kernel module should still be able to make a hypercall.
There's nothing special about writing such a kernel module for Xen vs a
native kernel module AFAIK.
