been going through the docs on the website. we're not in such bad shape i 
think-- i had to tweak a few things and remove some dead pages (eg., the old 
tree source code layout), but nothing major. i've also started to tidy up 
mirage-skeleton (added makefiles etc) as part of working through the 
hello-world wiki page. if people could run through the various install 
instructions (/wiki/{install,mirage-www,hello-world} -- a PR for the latter is 
still outstanding i think) to check that i didn't get anything wrong, that'd be 
really helpful :)

Thanks! I've updated the website.   There's a fairly critical fix in 
mirage-platform trunk that Dave just put in that repairs some of the Xenstore 
refactoring (restoring it back to a singleton handle).

The Xenstore code is almost ready to pull completely out of mirage-platform now 
though, which helps pull yet another major part out into a UNIX compatibility 
layer too.

Before I cut mirage-0.9.6 though, I'm possibly seeing a regression on the Netif 
device: lots of packet loss on the live website.  However, I'm on slow wifi 
from the BA lounge at Heathrow, so if Dave/Vincent could do a bit of testing on 
Netif that'd be most helpful.  I'll delay cutting 0.9.6 until then.

I fixed up the mirage-skeleton/tcp/iperf_self test and got the following output:

# grep Iperf out --text
Iperf client: Attempting connection.
Iperf client: Made connection to server.
Iperf server: Received connection.
Iperf server: t = 1.000188, rate = 1092481 KBits/s, totbytes = 136585920, live_words = 33461 Iperf server: t = 2.000279, rate = 1094877 KBits/s, totbytes = 273458000, live_words = 69308 Iperf server: t = 3.000629, rate = 1114232 KBits/s, totbytes = 412785800, live_words = 58415 Iperf server: t = 4.002314, rate = 1106742 KBits/s, totbytes = 551361700, live_words = 26693 Iperf server: t = 5.002414, rate = 1131118 KBits/s, totbytes = 692765620, live_words = 25897 Iperf server: t = 6.002414, rate = 1147174 KBits/s, totbytes = 836162440, live_words = 40041 Iperf server: t = 7.002637, rate = 1174664 KBits/s, totbytes = 983028220, live_words = 24499 Iperf server: t = 7.125094, rate = 1122792 KBits/s, totbytes = 1000000000, live_words = 33267
Iperf client: Done.
Iperf server: Done - closed connection.

The rate looks reasonably stable to me, but I'm not familiar with running this test. Anyone got any ideas?
