This is still my private project, although if it's generally useful then maybe 
it can be adopted as part of the Xen project?

For the benefit of the list, there are two branches in 

- The 'master' branch is a very basic standalone device emulator. It serves as 
boilerplate for emulation of a single PCI device.

- The 'console' branch is a (PS/2) Keyboard-VGA-Mouse emulator using 
libVNCServer which can potentially be used with an HVM guest with PV network 
and storage drivers, thus removing the need to use QEMU. demu is a small and 
constrained piece of code and thus presents a much smaller attack surface. The 
original intention was also to run it in a 'console service domain' to further 
contain damage it was successfully attacked.

It's likely that I will patch the code further once my current work on 
libxendevicemodel is done (following acceptance of my recent privcmd patches).
