The secret to MirageOS hacking is that most of the time, you
don't really need a Xen environment at all.  The vast bulk of protocol
development can be done in Unix with user-level networking, and then
a final switch to a Cubieboard2 or x86 Xen host is an easy way to
check that the Xen mode works.

So things like the DHCP server can all just be done without any
particular need for a Xen installation.
