The words "hypervisor independent" in my explanation. Iirc Jeremy
had a patch, and the non-Xen pieces got extracted from it for KVM
(in 3.8 I think). The Xen parts would need to be recovered and
pushed upstream. The way I did this for our kernel isn't even coming
close to what would be needed for upstreaming.
