Xen also allows for both para-virtualization and full virtualization of guests.
I wouldn't say that KVM would lose 75% of Linux guest's performance, but certainly 15-20% at the least.

It is not true at all. KVM and Xen are fundamentally different and address
different problems. Xen allows for fast para-virtualization of Linux Domus,
while KVM only fully-virtualizes. Nobody in his right mind would use KVM for
a linux DOMu, because it would lose 75% of its performance, compared to
para-virtualization. So KVM is for windows on Xen, but it will never replace
Xen in the datacenter.

That is not true. I think what you have heard is that RedHat has moved
from Xen to KVM as their virtualization platform.
Xen development is still continuing and moving at a fast pace with
hope of dom0 support for inclusion in the 2.6.30 kernel.
If I have mis-spoke will someone please correct me.
