IMHO, the best way to solve this would a additional line in the spec-file: "Provide: kernel-dom0" for those kernel that are provide this functionality. Then the xen-packages could "Require: kernel-dom0" no matter which way the kernel functionality came to be. Maybe ask even across distros for such a implemention, to get a more coherent experience for xen. Have a nice weekend, - Yamaban.
