I am very interested in this functionality, but mainly from a Windows
point of view (doing test restores of backups for customers). What would
be involved in getting this working under a HVM domain in the absence of
PV drivers?

Failing that, I'll see if I can incorporate it into the Windows PV
drivers I'm working on...
