Remember both XenServer and XCP have their "product patch queues"
which add a lot of patches on top of the xen.org releases.

For example XCP 1.1 (which is similar to XenServer 5.6 SP2):
xen-3.4.pq.hq - patch queue against tag RELEASE-3.4.2 in xen-3.4-testing.hg: 

qemu-xen-3.4.pq.hg - patch queue against c/s 284d056851f7 of 

dom0 kernel:

XenServer 6.0 and XCP 1.5 are based on Xen 4.1.x,
but still using Xenlinux 2.6.32 dom0 kernel.

XenServer and XCP are using *Xenlinux* kernel, not pvops.
It's based on Novell/SUSE SLES11SP1 2.6.32 Xenlinux patches.

That would be nice to have!
