Currently the model with stubdomains is that the stub domain runs a PVFB
device against a backend in dom0 (actually, another qemu) which does the
vnc export etc so there is no networking to the stub dom.

I can see valid reasons why you would want to have the stubdom itself do
the vnc export and therefore have a network of its own but I don't think
the toolstack can express that right now. I think it was done in the
early days of stubdoms, but I suspect in some hacky way (or perhaps just
DHCP), and I don't know if that functionality has persisted to the
present day.

Patches would be welcome.
