IBM are porting to the PPC970, which should help you some.  They're mostly 
aiming at the server market, so you'd need ta do some more work to get this 
running on an embedded PPC.

Depending on what you want to do there might be other solutions.  e.g. Adeos 
for multiplexing realtime OS components alongside Linux, Vservers for 
creating virtual machines within one Linux kernel.

That functionality is being pull into Xen anyhow...

I heard some vagues rumblings about an ARM port but haven't seen any code.  
Xen *could* be ported for any of these systems but there hasn't (yet) been 
sufficient interest from embedded developers wanting to make a port.
