------- Comment #1 from mvolaski@xxxxxxxxxxxx  2009-03-31 10:27 -------
In the current unstable branch of xen-tools, the file libxc/xc_linux.c looks
for /proc/xen/privcmd.

But this may or may not work. First, the latest tip for the dom0 kernel makes
the whole /proc/xen entity an option. Presumably, it will be superseded by
/sys/hypervisor, which itself is optional.

On top of that, /proc/xen requires the xenfs filesystem be mounted on it. 

I guess things that are required to work should not be optional and the two
code trees should be more in sync, perhaps.

Also, if there were logic for this error to occur, it should print a more
sensible error message.
