Hi.  Thanks for the patch.  But I think this patch does more than you
say it does ?

It introduces a new xen_startcmd, xen_stop and xen_status.  Presumably
these were previously provided by standard NetBSD machinery ?  Why is
that standard machinery unsuitable for start and status ?

Why wasn't the standard NetBSD machinery able to find the pid ?
How does its approach differ from check_pidfile ?

Sorry if these are all stupid questions.  If you can refer me to some
documentation about the NetBSD init system I may be able to pretend to
be less ignorant :-).
