Hi folks,
And congrats for the release of 2.0 -- this is really cool stuff.

While looking through Xen's features, I kept wondering if it's
possible to have a common kernel binary that would work with/without
Xen. In other words, to dynamically determine if it's running
under Xen, and behave appropriately.

And hence my questions:
  -- is this possible to begin with?
  -- has anyone looked into it already?
  -- what would be the implications?
  -- any significant performance problems?

Well, thank you for your time, and keep up the excellent work
on this amazing project!
