What's the status of your minios-as-a-library patches that we currently
have in mirage-xen-minios?  They never got applied upstream did they?

>  b) replace our fork of Mini-OS with the vanilla upstream Mini-OS.
>  c) re-apply my work and your work, while checking things keep working

> c) will leave us with a set of patches to upstream.
