Use xen 1.3 ("unstable") as this provides much better support for
doing this -- there are generic communication and console paths
for between domains.

You could either just use the console connection to domain 0 (and
have xend log security messages to disk), or create a separate
console connection for security messages (again, modifying xend
to log to the messages).
