Not really a wrapper script. On dom0 side it is console backend (qemu)
instructed to connect the console to a file, instead of pty. I have
implemented similar feature in my xenconsoled patch series sent a while
ago (sent along with v2 of this series), but that series needs some more

On the stubdomain side, it is a script that launches qemu - opens a
/dev/hvc2, then pass the FD to qemu via -incoming option (which is
really constructed by libxl).
