While playing with Windows 2008 + Hyper-V sometime ago, I found that

Hyper-V -> Xen dom0 -> Xen PV domU

gives MUCH better performance compared to

Xen dom0 -> HVM domU -> Xen PV domU

It's suitable enough for testing and development. I used it to compile
and test various Xen and kernel versions. If you have time you might
want to try that.
