I have found a few combinations of xen/kernel which don't work well but 
otherwise I find it works for my case.  
Currently xen 4.9.1, 4.1.47 dom0 kernel, mix of Ubuntu 16.04 4.4 and 4.14 
kernels in pv guests.  I use the tmem 
module to automatically balloon the guest up/down as memory pressure changes.
