'exporting' is the term we use when telling xend/blkback to make
a given block device accessible from another domain.  E.g. The
following exports /dev/hda3 read-write to the new domain, where
it will appear as /dev/sda1:

 disk = [ 'phy:hda3,sda1,w' ]

In the above example, the sda1 is sometimes referred to as the
target or destination device.
