Hello again, I would like to come back to that thing...sorry that I did not have the time up to now.
We (now) speak about
As compared to 2.6.34 Kernel with backported patches, the load on the DomU is at least twice as high. It
will be "close to normal" if I reduce the memory used to 4GB.
As you can see from the attachment, you once had an idea. So should we try to find something...?

You are on the right track. Load was going down to "normal" 10% when reducing
Xen to 4GB by the parameter. Load seems to be still a little, little bit lower
with Xenified Kernel (8-9%), but this is drastically lower than the 20% we had
