Some more remarks:

XendBootloader.py misses a timeout and waits for the bootloader
to finish forever; I just made a TODO. One of the problems it
causes though is that the xenbl FIFO may stay laying around.
To avoid clashes, I have added some randomness to the name.

Apart from the, the patch does add storing and passing
--disks= --root= --entry= to the bootloader call.

In the reboot code, I reconstruct the disks list in the form
it's created on initial creation (4-tuples) from the sxpr;
I'm not very happy with the way that's done. If someone with
intimate sxp knowledge wants to send a followup patch that
makes the code more beautiful here, I would appreciate it.
