I was speaking of putting xenalyze into the xentrace directory.  That
directory already has xentrace, xentrace_setsize, xenctx, and
xentrace_format.  I'd prefer it be in its own directory
(tools/xenalyze), but either way works for me.

(I suspect xentrace_setsize probably *should* be merged in with xentrace
as a command-line option; and xenctx should be rationalized with the
other version of it -- hvmctx or something?)
