[et-mgmt-tools] paravirtualization on a T7200

I'm using kvm in Ubuntu Intrepid x86_64, and I thought kvm could do
paravirtualization. So I'll try xen while I'm waiting for a new release of
kvm with paravirtualization support.

Thanks a lot Cole, you answered my questions!

I'm using kvm so I guess that's the problem, then I'll try Xen soon.
