Parent article: Xen again
utility which is able to run xen paravirtualized kernels as guests on linux
hosts, without the xen hypervisor, using kvm instead.
I haven't tried it out, but running Xen DomU on KVM seems perfectly
possible. In any case, KVM and Xen+HVM are about equal in terms of
KVM's "Dom0" is the unmodified Linux kernel, running on bare hardware
— there's nothing special about it. I'm not sure why you'd even
want Xen's Dom0 there?
HVM No HVM
KVM Supports many guests Not possible
Xen Supports manu guests Supports paravirtualized guests
The "not possible" (unless you're satisfied with QEMU) is what the Xen
supporters are really focusing on.
