An update: I've pushed support for the Cubieboard2 and Cubietruck
into the https://github.com/mirage/xen-arm-builder, and the resulting
dom0 now starts up with networking and the OCaml packages all 
installed to have a nice development environment.

If someone else with a Cubie wants to try it out, this is a good
time.  Just grab an Ubuntu 14.04 container or machine, run the
above commands, and dd the cubie.img onto an SDcard.  You can ssh
into the Cubie with username/password "linaro" and alter it.  No
serial console should be required now unless something goes wrong.

I did a quick test of MiniOS and that boots fine, and will give
FreeBSD a quick spin tomorrow.  Should be all set for Mirage on
there now.
