A new version of my patch is attached that understands DOS partition
tables (so long as your libext2fs libraries are up to date.)

I do prefer Kurt's changes to the xm create "bootloader" syntax.  They
are cleaner than what I've done with pyfscat.  I'd like to do a merge of
the pygrub extraction code with his bootloader structure, but haven't
time to do it properly at the moment.
