Just to clarify, Intrepid apparently does have Xen 3.3 hypervisor support.

The dom0 kernel, just like with Fedora 9,10, is missing from Intrepid as
both Fedora and Ubuntu decided to wait for upstream linux xen support [1,2]
in order for them to again include a dom0 kernel. A pv_ops-based dom0
kernel should soon be supported by the xen developers and be put into
mainline Linux
