I haven't tried to get this working on pvops yet, but it's simple in

domU ought to work now, albeit somewhat slowly since the pvops domU
doesn't support suspend requests over a dedicated event
channel. Cooking up a patch for this is probably not too hard.

dom0 requires nothing but the upstream IMQ patch, and blktap2
support, which I am told it currently lacks, but I'm sure it will get
in the not-too-distant future.
