Citrix PV drivers obviously do run on XenServer and on XCP.

If you want to run them on plain Xen.org hypervisor,
you might need to set up some xenstore entries manually, 
ie. citrix pv drivers might assume some entries be present 
in xenstore that are not used by the traditional xen pv guests.

I think there has been some additions to those entries.
