OK, I understand the problem now:
the block device backend driver wants a block device (e.g. /dev/vnd0d).
qemu-dm wants the raw device (e.g. /dev/rvnd0d). We should pach either
qemu-dm to add the 'r' to the path, or xend to do so.
My feeling it that's it's easier to do in qemu-dm at this time (we can
do a stat(2) first to see if the given path is a block device, and hack the
path if it is).
