Not easily, and domid's probably aren't the best thing to use for this

Why not just arrange to pass in some identifier on the kernel command
line? It will be available as an environment variable within startup

We've used this technique on the demo CD, for example, to pass in IP and
port details of the VNC listner for the Xvnc server to connect back to.
