I played with the Pine64 and Xen last year. There are some work to do in
order to get Xen booting on the board. It is not fully complete as I lacked
of time. For instance the clock frequency has been hardcoded in the ns16550
driver (the UART for pine64 is a derivation of ns16550)...

Below the changes I had to made to get DOM0 booting. IIRC I was struggling
to get the input working. The UART is the same as the cubietruck, but 
somehow it behaves differently (not sure why) and therefore there is some
missing pieces in the driver.

I hope this helps.

Cheers,
