Certainly sounds sensible to me.  The x86_64 xen_unstable.hg didn't even
boot an SMP dom0 until the module-faulting changes went in today; that
sort of thing really could do with having more exposure.

Fedora/rawhide is currently shipping only SMP kernels for x86_64 and
that's working pretty well.  (We still have UP kernels as an option for
i386, though.)
