This megapatch updates the xenstore daemon, updates the xenbus code, and

We just got this to bring a block device up; tomorrow we'll be cleaning
it up, getting destroy, suspend and resume working.

You'll need Anthony's experimental store-enabled vm-tools: he's sending
email about it now.


Block device and network interface setup has been working in the control
tools CVS for several days, and is fully integrated with the xend tools.
It would be more helpful if you would integrate with that code instead
of going off on your own.
