Yes, it was. But i meant an old people/aperard/xen-arm -b
chromebook-2013-03-22 which "Xen ARM with Virtualization
Extensions/Chromebook" page at Xen's wiki refers on.

Indeed, there is a progress going on ARM platform support in general,
but Chromebook isn't an official Xen port, right?
"we didn't make any more progress on the Chromebook port so the page
is the most recent information we have on it."
And this page points to aperard's repos for both xen and kernel, so
either wiki's page isn't updated, or the work on Chromebook hadn't
been merged into Xen mainline.
