Be sure to `opam update -u` before attempting a compilation, as that will give 
you the latest package sets and upgrade all relevant packages.

The "opam install" that is invoked by the unikernel build won't upgrade 
everything, hence the problems you're seeing.  If it persists after an upgrade, 
we have a constraint problem.

Woops, I did not merge that.  Doing so now, and I'll slip the 1.1.0 tag again 
then.  Is there a example of using this in mirage-skeleton?
