David, agree on all kernel drivers but what about userspace backends
and other OSes?
I don't have an opinion on user space drivers.  I would suggest that
userspace backends live with the existing ones in qemu.

Are userspace frontends useful?  Isn't a kernel driver required for
proper access control?

I believe the answer is in http://wiki.xenproject.org/wiki/XPDS13_BoF_Notes_:_Seeding_an_Android_and_Embedded_ecosystem#Missing_Pieces_for_a_complete_Android_system_on_top_of_Xen

As far as I understand, Android requires functionality to be made available via userspace drivers. These would sit on top of the kernel drivers.
