I just had this idea, but so far haven't validated whether that is
possible at all.

When running a GNU/Hurd system on Xen, is it still required to have the
kernel (Mach) provide the e.g. block and network device drivers?  If I
understand this issue correctly, such a device driver in a Xen domU is
``only'' forwarding the requests to the Xen hypervisor.  Could this also
be done from userspace and could we thus have to-be-written translators
sitting on `/dev/hd*' and `/dev/eth*'?
