Xen3 disables C1E resulting in more power consumption than in C1.
This leads to the higher cpu temperature even when idling.
In C1E state, the LAPIC is off and causes timer problems which in
turn impact scheduling and the guest clock.
That's why C1E is disabled.
The "fix" would be to implement PowerNow support in NetBSD/Xen
(Dom0 only feature). PowerNow support in Xen is partially
available in Xen 3.2, better support will be in the coming Xen 3.3.
