I'm actually in the process of submitting patches to bring in the newer
version of Xen. When you update SeaBIOS I would double check that
CONFIG_XEN is on because I believe its not by default anymore. The
DISTRO_FEATURES_append is correct and the MACHINE should be fine. I'm
using meta-intel and actually using intel-corei7-64 for MACHINE.

If you would please CC me whatever patches you send I would appreciate that.
