it is not easy.
I have investigate it: xen-4.x have more changes and need update illumos with it, but after these update support of xen-3.4 will be unavailable.

with updates of illumos build we have to update xen-4.x build too.

I have tried to build illumos with changes for xen-4.2 and xen-4.3(xen-unstable), but I have panic on loading dom0.
if anybody will be interest - i can share my changes as additional dilos-illumos-xen fork from dilos-illumos-gate with my changes on bitbucket.
