Not particularly likely, I'm really sick of carrying backports of crap
for aeons on a "promise" that things will get upstream.
Well, unlike 20 kernel releases back the xen guys are actually getting
their stuff upstream now. Chances are pretty good that the drivers make
it into the 2.6.38 merge window.
If things are
already /merged/ in 2.6.37-git by then, then maybe, but see below.

What's the overhead?
Just some xen specific drivers below drivers/xen/
Why would we want to support it? What's the upside?
Fedora will be able to work as Xen host?
