LVM and Xen given module load issue


Wanted to inquire what the recommended process is for setting up a Xen
host system with support for LVM (and dm kernel driver/etc.) given
that module loading does not function with the Xen Dom0 kernel. The
only option I see is to modify the kernel to include 'pseudo-device
dm' but I'm not clear on ability to do this in the Xen kernel.

If the kernel customization is the only option for this, can the build
(kernel + userland utils) be done properly from within a booted Dom0,
or does one have to load the standard NetBSD environment to build

Incidentally, is there any appetite for the possibility of
building/including by default the LVM tools in NetBSD proper? I'm a
little surprised that they're not linked into build by default.
