Did you get any further dealing with this issue ? It'd be nice to get the
support for HVM guests into libvirt in the near future, since I'm working
on some higher level UI tools which could be improved with more detail
about HVM guests. I could probably find time to do some coding on the patches
if there are areas you've not currently got time to address yourself 

Regards,
Dan.
