The current setup where each driver replicates all the device channel setup 
code code is a bit nasty.

It would be well worth the effort to split out the device channel protocols 
into a device-specific portion (details of associated VBDs / VIFs / feather 
dusters) and a generic portion (details about the shared memory page, event 
channels, etc).
