There is a book you may find valuable written by David Chisnall

The definitive guide to the Xen hypervisor
ISBN-10: 013234971X
ISBN-13: 978-0132349710

The book covers in great detail the inner-workings of Xen 3.0. Not sure
how much of it is still valid in today's Xen. I know David was working
on an errata for a second print, covering Xen 3.1, but he has postponed
the work on the book for the past year as the sales (unsurprisingly)
have marginally reached 3k copies.

It would also be useful if someone on this list who have read the book
could enlighten the community WRT possible caveats on the book or parts
that no longer resemble the current implementation, as it appears Xen
has changed considerably since the book was released.
