Highly unlikely it'll appear as an F9 update, no.

kernel-xen lagged the bare-metal kernel by several release; we no longer
wanted to waste time forward porting the 2.6.18 tree, so we switched
over to what's upstream - 32 and 64 bit pv_ops DomU

That's looking rather unlikely at this point since there hasn't been
much progress of late.

It'll be in Fedora as soon (and maybe even shortly before) it's
available upstream in Linus's tree.

Cheers,
Mark.
