No, it does not.

The IA64 developers have not been active in the upstream (paravirt_ops)
kernels for quite some time AFAICT, even for domU.

I'm pretty sure there has been no progress made towards upstreaming ia64
dom0 support. I've not seen a single IA64 developer express an interest
in doing so and I'm afraid this isn't going to happen without IA64
developers engaging and doing the work.

You should address your ia64 questions to the xen-ia64-devel list for
maximum chance of attracting a relevant developer's attention.
