This patch will can be broken up into two:

1. A patch that modifies is_hardware_domain.
2. A patch that adds the domid command line option.

But I think the first patch is not required because the pv-in-pvh shim
works fine even if the guest is not hardware domain.

Please don't do any real work yet -- we need to agree on the things
in the my reply to the cover letter first.
