This work is not committed to xen-unstable, since it is currently based
on an older checkout of xen-unstable, and there's a lot of cleaning up
left to be done.  I'm hoping to have more to show within a month or two,
but if/when the work makes it to xen-unstable is up to the main Xen

Let me know if you want to see some of the current code to see how it
works, but be warned it's not currently easy to get running and has some
stability issues.
