I'm looking to expose a(several) drive "/dev/sda" that is physically to the
XCP host to a pv guest running locally. 
I know this would tie the VM, which lives in a remote SR, to this specific
XCP host that this local disk. 

I'm not looking to create a VHD file on this local drive and use it as a
disk in the VM.  
I'm looking to expose entire physical disks to the guest to run ZFS RAID
operations on them.

Before XCP I would add a line like this to the guest config file  to expose
a local drive.

disk = [ 'phy:/dev/vg0/filesrversystem,xvda1,w', 'phy:/dev/sda,xvda2,w' ]


xm block-attach myhost phy://dev/sda /dev/xvdc w
