Hmm, difficult. Is this ever tested automatically? I just tried and
it died:

vbd 51712 is hd0
******************* BLKFRONT for device/vbd/51712 **********
backend at /local/domain/0/backend/qdisk/3/51712
Failed to read /local/domain/0/backend/qdisk/3/51712/feature-barrier.
16777216 sectors of 0 bytes

I guess I need a special setup to make it work. :-(
