I can't see any Xen kernel in Squeeze with support for Xen. Am I blind?

I don't see the hypervisor either, the only packages with xen in are:

dtc-xen, xen-utils-common, and libc6-xen.

Most, if not all the computers I have access to do not have the virtualisation

Like I said previously, I think dropping Xen support is a mistake because KVM
requires QEMU and QEMU seems to have a reputation of being insecure.
