So I took a spin at this - it applies nicely and cleanly to 3.2, and
was wondering how you profile passive domains?

I do something like this:

opcontrol --vmlinux=/mnt/lab/vmlinux-dom0 --xen=/mnt/lab/xen-syms 
--passive-domains=3,2 --callgraph=10 
--passive-images=/mnt/lab/10gb/tiny-vmlinux  -p=cpu 
opcontrol --start-daemon

opcontrol --start
/mnt/lab/10gb/create_csv.sh 1
opcontrol --stop

The little create_csv.sh makes the two domains talk to each other
(netperf) and I want to get a feel for what it is happening.

But what I get is exclusivly to domain0 and to xen. Nothing about
the guests?

Are you doing something speciail to profile the passive domains?
