Comments on this one?

Another idea:  Do the initial merge in hw/, and later on, after the
qemu-xen tree catched up, move all xen (and xen emulation) bits to
another directory.  That would keep the scm revision history intact for
the Xen guys.

I also think we need to organize the source -- especially the header
files -- a bit better if we start to separate the code into more
subdirectories.  And I'd prefer to have some agreement on how the source
tree should look like before starting to shuffle around files, so I have
to do it only once ...
