This makes sense to me.  We use upstream MiniOS now (with some patches to
support installation as a library), so we don't need to do anything
special to benefit from your patches if you submit them upstream.  Have
you sent an RFC to xen-devel to get other people's reaction to this?  I
can't imagine it'll be too contentious if other uses (such as the qemu
stub domain) are also fixed up to support this.
