I have been away from the xen list for quite a while so bear with my current level of ignorance.


 I was wondering if anyone has made a really minimal xen0 image. By this I mean an image that doesn’t have much more than the kernel (f/e and b/e drivers linked in), and run from a crom or squashfs filesystem, and a minimal set of tools running in a busybox-like init process.


If necessary, maybe even have a runtime xen0 that just does I/O, and a management privileged domain to run the mgmt tools.
