Porting GNU Mach to make it run in a DomU under the Xen VMM might enable more
people to easily and effectively use GNU Mach (and with that the current Hurd
implementation).  That is at full speed and with hassle-free networking
compared to using an emulator like QEMU and without the need to have a spare
machine (costly, if at all possible) or double booting (uncomfortable).

This task involves a) enabling the main Mach kernel to run under Xen and b)
write / port the device drivers (block and network) to make it possible to
use the ``devices'' Xen provides.
