This is not possible by design, you should only be able to execute `xl 
block-attach ...` from the control domain (Dom0). This is due to the 
fact that attaching a new device to a guest requires write permissions 
in the guest xenstore paths, which the driver domain should not have.

Do you have either the `xl devd` command running or udev rules 
correctly setup inside of the driver domain?

Does something like the following work? If not, could you paste the 
error when running it with -vvv.

xl block-attach DomU
