The code to switch block devices over isn't checked in yet, the rest of
it is. It's not quite ready for checking in yet, but I think it got
posted to xen-tools.

Last time I looked, we weren't exporting all the information available
e.g. num logical cpus, num nodes, sockets per node. Also we should
export the Xen architecture as {x86_32, x86_32p, x86_64} rather than
reporting the dom0 architecture.

Also, please can you repost you dom0-mem-min and dom0-num-cpus patch to
the list for general review.
