This is the code that I've mimiced. Here,
"BOOTLOADER_LOOPBACK_DEVICE" is always "/dev/xvdp". But, in the case
of 'tap' devices, it gets destroyed later. (I don't want to destroy
it later since the iSCSI mount needs to be kept around.)

You are working at the wrong layer... there are block-scripts... don't
edit the xend python stuff!

And you understand that /dev/xvdp is for INSIDE the host?

But there is some other news... with Xen 3.3 pvSCSI is possible. Thus it might be better to pass along a scsi generic device instead of a disk.
