No I am compiling a 32 bit kernel. And AFAIK PV guests cannot be 64
bit yet, isn't it?

Please find my .config as an attachment to this mail.

BTW, i tried to have a look at the Kconfig files in the source
directory and here is my naive interpretation.

- if PARAVIRT_GUEST is "y", arch/x86/xen/Kconfig will be read.But i
did not get the submenu related to Xen.I got menu option(s) only
related to VMI and Lguest.
