Hi Jun,

I'm a bit confused by your response, are you working on creating a
"stub" domain along with adding the drivers to the minios or both? They
aren't the same. If you've already started on the adding a PV "stub" to
an HVM domain, how'd you define the relationship between the PV stub and
the HVM domain? What stage are you at with the effort?
