It is a sort of kernel. And no, I don't think it is better.
Just to say, how connected xen to linux is:
For example: There are three kernel trees of xen:
- from xen-3.0-testing, 2.6.12
- from linux-2.6-xen, 2.6.16-rc4
- from linux-2.6-merge, 2.6.16-rc3
All of them have different needs from xen.
The kernels from xen-3.0-testing and linux-2.6-merge works with a 3.0
and unstable hypervisor.
The 3.0 utils only works on the kernel from xen-3.0-testing. The
unstable utils with the other. But with both hypervisors.

I won't reject the help of volunteers but I strongly think that the
kernel team needs to have its hands on them.
Peace was the way.
