CCing Daniel too since he has an interest in this mode of operation.

I appreciate the CONFIG_Linux thing is pre-existing, and stems from being
unable to build stubdoms on other platforms, but should we consider
building these supporting tools anyway, after all a user might get a
suitable stubdom via some other means?

Yes, this is actually rather easy to do: compile the stubdom on Linux and
just copy the .gz over; starting a stubdom doesn't actually rely on using
the tool.

The reason this is linux-specific is that the IOCTL_XENBUS_BACKEND_SETUP
call on /dev/xen/xenbus_backend is (afaik) only implemented in Linux. If
this changes, or if it compiles anyway, then I see no problem.
