Just a couple of quick questions that were running around in my head
lately. First, can either of the bsd ports operate as privleged domains
yet? And second, is it currently possible to do something like the following:

  hard disk(s)                 nic(s)
       |                          |
       |                          |
 /-----------\              /-----------\
 | dom0-priv |   blk dev    | dom1-priv |
 |           |--------------|           |
 |      xend |  event chnl  |           |
 \-----------/              \-----------/

and then have xend create unprivleged domains with block device event
channels hooked up to domain 0, and network device event channels
hooked up to domain 1?
