I am running it with r301685 and the HVM guests have some trouble with block devices. SeaBIOS does not find /dev/zvol/zroot/freebsd1,raw,xvda,w to boot FreeBSD from, after chaging to "hda" I get up to the kernel mountroot prompt (Xen block devices seem to be detected in dmesg). What used to be Windows 2016 domU with /dev/zvol/zroot/windows0,raw,hda,w ends up in the Tianocore UEFI shell. Block devices seem to be available, I can even list the fs0: partition, but no booting further possible.
