This patch is for upstream qemu, right?
In that case you always need to CC qemu-devel@xxxxxxxxxxx
Also when submitting patches for upstream qemu we need to try to reuse
the existing infrastructure to do things.
In this particular example, we cannot use xenstore to communicate the
password to qemu, we have to use QMP that is the RPC mechanism exported
by Qemu. Unfortunately libxl doesn't speak QMP yet, but adding QMP
support to libxl is one of the next things that have to be done anyway.
