Generally speaking, xen.org documentation applies to the xen packages in
openSUSE.  In the case of toolstacks, openSUSE still enables the legacy
toolstack by default, and all upstream documentation wrt the legacy
toolstack applies.  You can use the new toolstack as well, in which case
the upstream xl/libxl documentation applies - including recommendation
that the toolstacks should not be used in parallel.

What you have described in this thread is a bug in openSUSE12.1.  You
followed the documentation and it didn't work :-).

I'm not sure what the problem is with the manual.  You've hit a bug I
introduced in openSUSE.
