        Currently you cannot build a xen kernel with the following

            gcscehci gcscide gcscpcib geodecntr geodegcb
            geodewdog glxsb gscpcib viapcib

        These *could* be moved from sys/arch/i386/conf/files.i386
        to sys/arch/x86/pci/files.pci (sample patch), but would
        it make more sense to split them (along with possibly some
        others) into another file which can be included by i386
        and i386-xen?

Only viapcib stands a chance of being useful in a xen context.  The rest
is Geode-specific and that cannot run Xen, AFAIK.

        Hmm - the Geode LX and NX seem to be 686 compatible (unlike
        the earlier GX), so should be able to run xen?
