Thanks Dan.  The libvirt + tool stack is working fine as your described.
Running qemu VMs works as advertised for x86 emulation.  I had noticed the
Xen userland components missing as well and it makes sense now.  Guess I'll
focus on the kernel side for now.

Ah, another nice low-volume list :) I see your August thread in their
archives:
http://lists.infradead.org/pipermail/fedora-ppc/2007-August/001033.html

I'm going to cross-post for now as responses might be of interest to
subscribers of both lists.  Any additional comments on the state of
kernel-level Xen support from the PPC contingent?
