Yes, I don't plan to remove the old way on ia64.  I have not implemented
a VGA in the stub firmware and I don't plan to do it soon.  Only Windows
requires a VGA and I don't have Windows for ia64.

We are speaking about around 200 lines of code in the hypervisor and slightly
more for tools (300 lines mostly ia64 specific), right ?

Is the stub domain code already available ?  I'd like to have a look.
