These are set by xend, i.e. when they come from the config, indeed.

Doesn't look like it is possible.  Why would you want to do that?

I guess that's because blktap doesn't have the information.  The "info"
node is information about the underlying source of data, detected by
the block backend, while "mode" and "device-type" are configured by the
user (and should override the "info" information I guess).
