This appears to be the case. Found this,

XEN: Use the PVOPS kernel (fate#315712)

http://kernel.opensuse.org/cgit/kernel-source/commit/?id=c9b372d7a089f9522fc7e08de94cb345ef0ad559

Don't know yet where the separate reference branch is, and if there'll be pkgs associated with it.

Currently, with a separate kernel-xen, grub2 creates separate configs for kernel-default & kernel-xen.

And, in the case of EFI hardware, also creates xen-specific EFI binaries to chainload.

With the move to a single, 'integrated' kernel flavor, what changes are necessary in grub2's config prep to continue to be able to boot Xen -- but based on this new flavor?
