You can grab the src.rpm for the F7 kernel-xen and xen RPMs and just
rebuild them without change against FC6 & they'll work. You may need
to update a couple of supporting packages (mkinird & nash IIRC) but
aside from that it will just work. I've used this approach to do lots
of testing of the F7 xen stack ontop of FC6 distro.

Yep, that'll be available very shortly.... You don't even need to wait
5 days. Just take rawhide which is basically identical to what F7 will 
be when its out.
