also see the follow-up patches at:

this gets a little confounded because I have been tackling a couple
different issues:

- xenstored crashing
  - trying to address this by using oxenstored instead
  - xenbackendd also seems problematic here; it loses its brains when
    the store disappears, and doesn't recover gracefully
- switching from xm to xl
  - not expected to work under 4.1.2, but kinda does
  - 4.1.3 status is unknown
  - 4.2 is supposed to work

rpath is only related to the first.

if anybody has contacts at Intel who can get me funding to work on this
in my non-spare-time, please have them get in contact with me.  :)
