makedumpfile appears to be GPL, whereas libxc is LGPL, so if you wanted
to port code directly you would need permissions from the copyright
holders to re-license.

I think we would be OK with you reimplementing some of the techniques
within tools/libxc/xc_core*.c though, so long as you don't copy actual
code. Obviously just improving that code without reference to
makedumpfile is fine too.

I don't think we need or want yet another tool for doing this in the
code base though.

Another option would be for you to add Xen support to makedumpfile,
you'd want to speak to the maintainers of the tool about that though.
