Did you see the table ?
xen/stable-* pvops branches
All versions work properly on native. The module will build and load successfully
on bare-metal (e.g. without the hypervisor), but will just present a BLANK SCREEN
under Xen, without any detectable errors.

I tried to run Nvidia under Debian Squeeze but the result was the same as mentioned above.

There is a bug report for Debian: http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=570365
And here is an interesting thread: http://lists.debian.org/debian-kernel/2010/10/msg00289.html

I think there is few people who need to run Nvidia drivers under Xen, that's why it is still unfixed.
