I am only posting this to you since my postings to the xen list often never 
show up. As an OpenBSD user I am waiting for Vanderpool technology(VP) 
which will obviate the need to customize OpenBSD for Xen without VP.
The OpenBSD project does not (IMHO) have enough developer resources 
to support a temporary modification to the OS to permit it to run with the 
current  version of Xen. 

I only speak for myself, not the OpenBSD  developers.
