Linode explicitly doesn't reveal what Dom0 versions they're running,
for "security reasons".

There are a number of other providers in a league similar to that of
Linode, which instead use Linux KVM or Xen HVM and explicitly support
BSD systems, unlike Linode with their Xen PV and subsequent DomU

Unless there's some very good reason why you absolutely have to be
using Linode, I'd check or multi-continental offerings,
or perhaps even or, if a BSD server in the
cloud is needed.
