It's not easy as that. You have to specify checkers like
-c AutomatonChecker:dist/data/checkers/AutomatonChecker/kernel_memory.xml
etc. Then, probably stanse won't guess kernel build flags correctly, so
you need to utilize kernel make system. So the command-line (from linux
src dir) would be:
STANSE_HOME=PATH java -jar PATH/stanse.jar -c
--makefile Makefile --make-params 'drivers/pci/xen-pcifront.o'

Presumably drivers/pci/xen-pcifront.o must not exist so that when stanse
runs make, it actually builds something. It will warn you about that anyway.

Maybe you want to run with gui: -g to track the issues in gui. There you
can also add the checkers by hand (or on cmdline too).

For openSUSE, I package stanse into rpm, and there is a script which has
-k and adds all the kernel checkers by default.
