Re: [Xen-devel] [PATCH 0 of 6] dm-userspace xen integration

CL> Well, this is part of the tools build, while xm-test isn't.

I think that sounds good.

So, everything past the ioemu: is passed to qemu, which open()s it,
right?  I see there will need to be some changes made here to allow
qemu domains to work.  Wouldn't it make more sense to have the normal
device scripts run for qemu domains as well? (With the exception of
file: devices).  That would make it easier to add advanced block
device support for both types of domains without a special case for
HVM domains.
