Just a followup to this thread too.. 

The patch (from old Redhat dom0 tree) implementing /sys/hypervisor feature
is here:
http://git.et.redhat.com/?p=linux-2.6-dom0-pvops.git;a=commit;h=7aa79a5603bb604e8bf4fe7c31cc9c8b3d3b7ea2

Hopefully Jeremy will merge it to current pv_ops dom0 tree.

Discussion about this on xen-devel:

And another (more recent) thread on fedora-xen/fedora-virt about this subject:
