I would like to have VMware modules running in the XEN kernel, NOT in DOM0 kernel but outside at the hypervisor level, is that possible?  
Architecturally, I noticed that xen subbranch does not implement any modules loading.   If I were to load the VMware modules directly as an ELF image, will it break any existing architectural feature in XEN?
Thanks :-).
