I don't ever build the kernel out of the Xen tree.  In general, it
assumes the kernel tree has already been configured and built, which may
not be true if you're doing a parallel build, or if you're building the
Xen tree piecewise.

Yes, I'm happy to include it.  Do you have a git reference I can merge from?
