Cool... That is definitely something worth experimenting! :-)

That part definitely works. As a part of his participation to the 
TestDay (which happened thanks to your rc2 packages, so thanks again
Michael for doing that, and Eric for participating!), Eric produced this
log: http://pastebin.com/iyTYEgJ4

...
libxl: debug: libxl_dm.c:1303:libxl__spawn_local_dm: Spawning device-model 
/usr/bin/qemu-system-x86_64 with arguments:
libxl: debug: libxl_dm.c:1305:libxl__spawn_local_dm:   
/usr/bin/qemu-system-x86_64
libxl: debug: libxl_dm.c:1305:libxl__spawn_local_dm:   -xen-domid
libxl: debug: libxl_dm.c:1305:libxl__spawn_local_dm:   5
...

So... Yay! :-)

While investigating, we also spotted this:
http://pkgs.fedoraproject.org/cgit/qemu.git/tree/qemu.spec?h=f20

Which contains the following:

dobuild() {
    ./configure \
        --prefix=%{_prefix} \
        --libdir=%{_libdir} \
        --sysconfdir=%{_sysconfdir} \
        --interp-prefix=%{_prefix}/qemu-%%M \
        --audio-drv-list=pa,sdl,alsa,oss \
        --localstatedir=%{_localstatedir} \
        --libexecdir=%{_libexecdir} \
        --disable-strip \
        --extra-ldflags="$extraldflags -pie -Wl,-z,relro -Wl,-z,now" \
        --extra-cflags="%{optflags} -fPIE -DPIE" \
        --enable-mixemu \
        --enable-trace-backend=dtrace \
        --disable-werror \
        --disable-xen \
        --enable-kvm \
...

which seems to suggest that xen support is disabled in Fedora's qemu
package. Should we ask why they do that, and investigate whether that
can change (and, of course, whether that is enough for us) ?

Thanks again and Regards,
Dario
