    I want it so I can grow Xen guests after they have been booted
    up. Being able to hot-add memory is essential for dynamically
    resizing the memory of various guest OSes, to readjust them for
    the workload.

    Memory hot-remove isn't really needed with Xen, the balloon
    driver takes care of that.

    I'm interested. I want to get this stuff working with Xen ;)
