If it's okay to toot my own horn, my book just came out.  It's solidly
at the SysAdmin level, not the kernel-programmer level, but it does have
some serious practical experience behind it, and covers 3.0.3 through 
3.3/3.4  -  I would say that is fairly up to date for printed book standards.

see http://nostarch.com/xen.htm  if you are interested.

It's only got one OpenSolaris chapter, which is shared with NetBSD,
but we were lucky enough to get Rami Rosen as the technical editor, and 
I think he did an excellent job polishing what little info we have about
