This is the first patch to move the console code out of Xend and into a separate daemon. In this patch I've included the daemon and a front-end. I've also have the console code removed from Xend locally but I wanted to clarify a few things first before submitting that.

I checked in consoled. Can you send any further fixes, and code to plumb through xend?

Is it possible to make it configurable where console i/o goes (e.g., tcp socket as an option instead of tty?).

We can make it listen on tcp sockets by default or we can add another layer to expose the tty's as tcp sockets. I prefer the later. Thoughts?
