(Doesn't seem to be in the staging tree; re-sending just in case it
slipped through the cracks)

        Currently, we mount all blktap disks for pygrub so that it can boot
from e.g. QCOW images. However, since pygrub will handle a raw image
just fine without mounting through blktap, we shouldn't bother in that

        Also, it looks like XendDomainInfo.create_vbd() takes the full disk
uname rather than the image path.
