This won't work because xc_dom_control.py has to create the device
within Xen.  To do so, we need to provide a list of sector ranges and
the cookie of the device which holds these sectors.  I assume your
vnd device is backed by a file inside a filesystem, which makes it
very hard to get the sector ranges.

Yes and it will probably need a few patches.
