Yes. Specifically pvops Linux domain 0.

xenbus_file_write has an explicit whitelist of XS_FOO which are allowed,
which doesn't include XS_INTRODUCE.

This seems to be different in linux-2.6.18-xen due to 874:68d582b0ad05
and 876:bd7e30b58d12 which I had forgotten were already applied. I guess
those just need porting up to pvops.
