My big issue involves the creation of the dummy device. It's a
chicken and egg problem with create_vbd() that I'm not sure how to
get around. (The hotplug scripts have to run to get the device, but
need the device to run the hotplug script.) I may be able to fix that
by simply writing the correct information to the xenstore in the
right places after I learn them, but I don't know what places need
updating for the different parts of Xen. (I also haven't tested this
with Xen-API or migrations, so I may discover more problems if I'm
not structuring this in the right way.)

Can you show me your code of create_vbd? Because in my code I never
specify any device name. And if you look at file:/// syntax, do you ever specify /dev/loop0 as filename?
