I've had a decent amount of success running the XENHVM kernel, but in a 4.x Xen 
environment. If it can be made to work on EC2 though, then that would be worth 
the attention. If the XENHVM kernel won't run well on EC2 though, I've run 
FreeBSD in HVM mode with the GENERIC kernel through many FreeBSD and Xen 
versions in various combinations and always found it stable.
