Does anybody know something about Xen PV drivers for FreeBSD?

As far as I know there are no stable 
Xen PV-drivers for FreeBSD at the moment.  
But what about experimental drivers?

Please, if you have any information 
about this, tell it.

I think it would be interesting not only 
for me but for all who runs HVM domains

And the second question.

I run FreeBSD in domUs which work on host systems
with AMD CPUs only.

I could not run FreeBSD in HVM domain on 
Intel-based host systems.

Has anybody successfully run FreeBSD in a HVM domain on Intel-based host?

The message [1] describes several FreeBSD kernel options
that should be disabled in order to make FreeBSD work
in a HVM domain. The message is not directly related to Intel-based
host systems, but may be disabling of listed options can help to 
solve problems with the Intel-based systems too?

Thank you!
