Sorry: I see in the xen howto "the HVM support (for later versions
this is included in sysutils/xentools)."

I had my first attempt at an HVM and failed. In order to try to test
glib2/patch-ba myself, I tried to make a dragonfly domu:

builder = "hvm"
name = "dfly"
vcpus = 1
memory = 512
disk = ['phy:/dev/mapper/vg0-dfly,hda,w', 
vif = ['mac=00:1e:8c:5e:52:c8,bridge=bridge0']


# xl create -c dfly.cfg 
Parsing config from dfly.cfg
libxl: error: libxl_create.c:437:libxl__domain_make: domain creation fail
libxl: error: libxl_create.c:663:initiate_domain_create: cannot make domain: -3
libxl: error: libxl.c:1377:libxl__destroy_domid: non-existant domain -1
libxl: error: libxl.c:1341:domain_destroy_callback: unable to destroy guest 
with domid 4294967295
libxl: error: libxl_create.c:1171:domcreate_destruction_cb: unable to destroy 
domain 4294967295 following failed creation

I have netbsd and debian domus working but without hvm...

Presumably "hda" isn't much use to dragonfly, but the error looks worse
than that...
