I'm not aware of anyone having run Xen on a marvel chipset, but in
principal a port should be doable for someone who is interested. I
obviously can't comment on the features of this particular service wrt
installing and running your own OSes.

bzImage is an x86 specific concept (and one which is somewhat orthogonal
to ELF at that).

On ARM we currently support kernels in the ARM Linux zImage format.

There have been some people looking at direct ELF loading, but I think
anyone who started down that path eventually decided that sticking a
zImage header on the front of a raw binary kernel was easier. AFAIK
noone is still looking into ELF.
