More info would be good, if available.
I tried this with RHEL and Debian, and both performs poorly to the
point of being unusable (for me) even for training purposes.
Xen PV drivers for HVM domU can make HVM I/O performance increase
significantly (close to that of PV guest), but you can't use PV
drivers with -xen kernel :P
