Right, OK, but:

-#include <stdarg.h>
+#include "../../include/xen/stdarg.h"

Firstly, is this correct for all uses of libelf-loader ?  This file is
compiled both for use inside Xen and for use on the host.  In the
latter case it /should/ use the system's stdarg.h.

Also, this kind of relative path should not be necessary.  The
relevant files should be on the include path.

So I think this should be fixed by arranging that your new stdarg.h is
on the relevant include path, not by changing the .c file.
