These are for the Mirage blog, but I would very much like to distill
them into summary documentation suitable for the Xen blog.  The audiences
for both are fairly different -- the Mirage readers would want more of
the mechanics of the toolchain, whereas the Xen crowd probably care more
about the details of the protocols.

Agreed -- I suggest we push these out to the Mirage blog over December
(the GitHub issue now has target dates on it for those who 'volunteered' 
on the Mirage call), and then summarise for the Xen blog.

Definitely agree. The OSv folk also have a lot of nice information about
deploying custom kernels to EC2, so I'll href their wiki when writing
that up.
