Re: [Xen-users] [Xen-devel] Virtio on Xen

These sorts of questions are more appropriate to the users list, so
moving there.

There is no mainline support for virtio under Xen.

You can find info on the wiki about a GSoC project from a few years back
which prototyped this for some (but not all) configurations, but this
was only a prototype and is not ongoing work.

Why do you want virtio? The Xen PV drivers have been present in mainline
kernels for many years and are enabled in most distros these days.
