Wing, this patch is great improvement.
Without this patch, we cannot boot windows 2008,
and also cannot boot windows 2003 automatically on ia64.
I have a few commens.
PERROR doesn't print messages because libxc doesn't have terminal.
So it is better to pass Error codes (e.g. ENOMNT, EPERM..) to xend so
xend can catch exceptions and, as a result, it puts error messages in

How do you like this?

Keir and Ewan, do you have any other comments?

Best Regards,
