In a grub-config, if one do:
kernel my_xen.gz ...
module netbsd-dom0 ...
What is the correct way to pass NetBSD information about the location
of the root device? 
Or, asking the other way round: How is it done with linux? 

"The netbsd bootblocks pass boot information as a structure on the 
[kernels] stack" <- this seems to be the NetBSD method. 

Maybe Xen tries it the linux-way, and fail?
