Not exactly. The Xen stuff has been merged into the kernel for quite
some time now. As with almost every feature of the kernel, however, it
is configurable to be compiled in or not. The stock CentOS 6 kernels do
not have the Xen features enabled at compile time, and therefore cannot
run Xen even though the versions of kernels that they run _could_
support it. It's something they actively choose to disable.
