Hey Amos,
All domains will get a devtree, as Dom0 does today, with our OF- handler stuff, or DomU's will normally get them thru a flattened device tree from the DTC project (or we could install and OFH as well here).

So either prom_init.c or prom.c are run, why do we need xen specific logic?

BTW: the Xen passes the string after "--" in bootargs to Dom0
