I've already made a patch when I doing para-driver debugging.
see the attach patch.
Does it fit the requirement?
It will skip setupping up the loop device for ioemu image files,
but by xm vbd-list, it can still see the file bind to hda.
so  this command is still useful.

-disk = [ 'file:/var/images/min-el3-i386.img,hda,w' ]
+disk = [ 'ioemu:/var/images/min-el3-i386.img,hda,w' ]

The ioemu: prefix should be on the second element i.e:

+disk = [ 'file:/var/images/min-el3-i386.img,ioemu:hda,w' ]

and it should allow:

+disk = [ 'phy:hdb,ioemu:hda,w' ]
