Attached you can find a patch which adds support for 'file:' and 'data:'
URI schemes for the parameters 'PV/kernel' and 'PV/ramdisk' in the
VM.create() call.
The 'data:' scheme handling enables using a file which is stored inside
the management system (from where the XenAPI call is send) as kernel
or ramdisk.

o all included: a detailed description can be found in the xenapi
o bumped up the version of the API document to 1.0.8 (because of
(minimal) interface extension)
o Future enhancements (like http:, ftp: schemes) fit seamlessly into the
current design / classes

Kind regards
