No.  xen/next-2.6.36 doesn't exist any more, and it never really
contained anything useful.  xen/next-2.6.37, however, is closely
tracking upstream and I hope will reach functional parity with the
2.6.32-based branches.

I'll post something the next week or so when we work out what needs to
happen with .37 to get it up to speed.

That has been merged into mainline Linux.
