Now that Xen has platform code has been upgraded to be based off of the

working on this? Is the unstable tree ready for this?

I'm not sure what 'genapic' support is, but if you mean porting things like mach-es7000 across to Xen, then yes: I think we are now ready for that.

Longer term I'd like to make switching between the different mach types a run-time rather than compile-time decision. But that will require a fair bit of modification to the standard Linux way of doing things -- for initial 3.0 I think we'll stick to compile-time switches for selecting esoteric platform configurations.
