Hi Tanu,

module-xenpv-sink was part of a GSoC project to have a paravirtualized audio driver in Xen, but it seems that there was little further interest from the community and it was later abandoned. AFAIK no one ever used it in practice so I think you could just remove it at this point. Not sure why libxen would break backwards compatibility without notice though.

Let me know if I can help with anything else
