All of this patch series with the exception of the one about the logging
API is now committed to CVS. As a temporary hack,the loggin stuff is 
replaced by a simple fprintf, until we can decide what todo about it.

The two known broken things I need to address tomorrow:

  - The network driver won't work for non-QEMU local access eg Xen.
    It will work for QEMU, or Xen via the remote daemon

  - The daemon for handling QEMU session connections doesn't autospawn.
