At the moment, no, since we don't have a hotpluggable uvm(9). I'm not
sure if this is possible at all, or with other OS (linux ?) domUs,
since it is the hypervisor's job to make sure this doesn't happen.

Also, cegger@ pointed out to me that the sysctl nodes are only useful
for dom0. Thus they should go away for domUs. This does not answer
your question though. I'll leave it to be answered by people who're
more familiar with the Xen kernel than I am.
