While I welcome this move, I do not think it can be done easily, as there
are entries created dynamically under kernfs that cannot (yet?) be
manageable through /dev.

Anyway, if you want to commit (both upstream and in pkgsrc) preliminary
support for /dev/xen nodes within xentools (something "like check for
existence, then fallback to /kern/xen"), you have my vote :)

Many thanks for working on it, I never found enough time to get something
