[(Comment - MC)] I have a netbsd-6.0-BETA dom0 at home, I have a
netbsd-6.0-BETA domU, and it works great, I have not tested with xl, but
I'll be happy to help testing.
Also, yesterday I finished setting up another netbsd-6.0-BETA2, this time at
work, and today I'll be trying to set up a netbsd-domU with npf.
It?s a nice machine I can run a few more domU tests, in fact I plan to setup
at least 1 more FreeBSD domU, and probably another netbsd.

[(Comment - MC)] Yeah... I've tested with Freebsd amd64 and OpenBSD, Freebsd
HVM+PV does work, but I agree its slower than expected.
