[Xen-devel] [PATCH RFC 00/12] libxl: add driver domain backend daemon

This patch series introduces support to launch device backends from
driver domains using libxl, removing the need to setup udev on driver

The daemon currently supports vbds, vifs and qdisks as backends.

and add several helper functions that will be used to build the
infraestructure needed for libxl to work on domains different than

The last patch (12) adds a new xl command, "devd", that can be used to
launch a daemon that will listen to changes in the xenstore "backend"
directory for the domain and perform the necessary actions to attach
the devices.
