Yeah, that would be better if it could use kernel_info. But the problem
is that kernel_info is firstly used in construct_dom0(), while it needs
to store the cbase in domain_create() which is called before
construct_dom0(). And if we pass kernel_info as parameter to
domain_create(), this would introduce more changes to common codes.

Do you have any better idea to handle this?
