Hi all,
this small patch series implements the components needed by PV on HVM
guests to boot; in particular the "unplug protocol" to dynamically unplug
emulated disks and nics when the guest starts.

The patch to implement the Xen platform device has been sent to the list
several times before by Anthony, I believe no issues were found in the
last few iterations.

The other two patches are new and implement the disks and nics unplug.
The old code we have in qemu-xen to do this is not very "elegant", to
use an euphemism; I tried to prettify the implementation as much as I
could, please let me know if you have any suggestions to improve it.
