The cdrom media change stuff only appears to work in the qemu/ioemu (eg
not pv) mode. There is no mechanism to notify disk change in the pv
communication path.

That said, block-detach and block-attach appear to work just fine.
Obviously doing a block-detach to a device with a page file or something
on it isn't going to work but I just tested it on a cdrom image and it
worked fine. My domain is called virtdemo so I did this:

xm block-detach virtdemo hdc
xm block-attach virtdemo
file:/installmedia/Microsoft/WLK_1.1.100_RTM.iso hdc:cdrom r

Network devices appear to hotplug okay too.

Please let me know if this doesn't work for you.
