These patches for three different repos make rumpdisk expose a block device and 
boot off it.

I have tried to keep the patches separate for now, but easily can be squashed.

There are two known issues with this:

1. The server using libpciaccess currently needs to be faked with 
netfs_server_name "pci-arbiter".
Ideally we need to convince upstream pciaccess to have a new api for selecting 
between backends.

2. There is no communication between startup/shutdown <-> rumpdisk yet,
so hangs when you try to reboot. (How do I fix this?)
