This series removes the use of udev rules to call hotplug scripts when using
libxl. Scripts are directly called from the toolstack at the necessary points,
making use of the new event library and it's fork support.

What about non-dom0 backends? There will be no simple way to execute script
there by libxl without help from udev...

A new config option has been added on this series (disable_xl_vif_scripts) that allows the user to keep executing vif scripts from udev, so this functionality is not lost.

In Qubes-OS we heavily use network backend in domU: dom0 have no network at
all, all NICs are attached (as PCI device) to some domU - called NetVM, where
network backend resides.

There should be no problem with that, you will just need to use the new option.

Also vbd backend in domU is used - eg to boot HVM from iso, which is stored in
some domU.

I didn't know you where able to use vbd from driver domains with xl, if so I will have to add a similar option for vbd devices (disable_xl_vbd_scripts).
