 A little while ago, I send modified VBD information patch.

However, I does not sit well with location.
I does not find statistical information under 'device' directory, and see them 
under 'class' directory for vif. (/sys/class/net) But, there are not 
appropriate location. (/sys/class/vbd or /sys/class/block)

Is it a correct place for such type of information?
Is it necessary to make symbolic links to other places?
Where is appropriate place?
Please comment.

I think that it is good to handle such information at one partial tree for 
My idea is to take a kind of following structure for store such information.

   sys -- class -- xen --+-- domain0 --- balloon ( symlink to 
/sys/class/mem/balloon ?)
+-- domain1 --+-- vbd --+-- vbd-x-xxxx(symlink?) | |
                                                     |            +-- total 
information file.
+-- vif -- vif-x-xxxx(symlink)

What about /sys/hypervisor/xen/domain/1/vbd

/sys/hypervisor is going into upstream linux, and that leaves /sys/hypervisor/xen/ as our namespace for info.
