[Xen-devel] plan 9 status

plan 9 is now using its "hard drive" (Xen vbd) and is able to cpu to
itself (think of cpu as ssh). There is a nagging authentication problem
such that I can not use drawterm (kind of xterm+ssh) to plan 9, but once
that one is fixed I'm going to release vmware images.

Right now it's:
1 running against an older xen
2 contains debug console output
3 slower than I'd like (need to get to those 10 second full kernel builds 
  I'm used to)
4 using its own loader 

I intend to fix these things in order 1,2,3,4

Lots of time hiccups as SC '04 dominated my life this month.

Once this is done I can start playing with some ideas I've been wanting to 
try in Plan 9.
