It is definitely worth checking that you don't have any debug options
enabled in your kernel .config. Some of those options are far more
expensive under Xen than native. (unfortunately I'm drawing a blank on
precisely which options we've seen this with right now, anything to do
with debugging page allocations etc would be a good bet).
