Well... It worked, regardless of guest type, when it was introduced first time.
At that time xend was Xen toolstack. Than xl appeared on the scene and it 
working. I tried to fix it but I was diverted to something more important. Last
time David (CC-ed here) fixed some memory hotplug issues in Linux kernel (please
check for-linus-4.4 branch in 
for more details). I suppose that he manged to overcome some xl deficiencies and
he will be able to shed some light what he did. If not or his work is not 
then I leave this on my TODO list. I hope that I will be able to work on this 
year. However, if somebody is up to this work I am able to mentor he/she or at
least review relevant patch series. Here are my old patches for xl:

old but I think it could be good starting point for further work.
