Thanks for your interests in XenGT.
The document and git you mentioned is an old version to bring up XenGT on Intel
Apollo Lake (code name) embedded board. It's using old architecture XenGT.
After GVT-g has been upstreamed to kernel 4.10, we would like users to switch
to this new architecture GVT-g because it's upstream friendly and our latest features
and patches will only apply to this version.
In order to bring up XenGT on Apollo Lake (APL), it does need minor ABL changes, apply
SoC patches to "upstream" version XenGT, it also needs i915 drm driver changes
Can you check with your Intel account manager to get more information?

hypervisor? Or is a generic version of Intel BSP integrated with the kernel

compile the Kernel, Xen and Qemu builds as mentioned in the link above for
our Intel embedded board using a Linaro toolchain. If not, is there a way, we
can link this particular version of XenGT directly with our Yocto image for the
Intel board by including the meta-virtualization layer as mentioned in the link
doing 'bitbake xen image minimal'?
