KVM needs hardware support, while Xen is a para-virtualization
environment and doesn't need any special hardware. I don't know about
libvirt and what is is. However, Xen works just great (and is deployed
by many commercial hosters) and the main Arch servers have relied on it
for over 2 months. Xen is very stable and well-tested, I doubt you can
say the last on other para-virtualization environments.
