AFAIK there's no backend code in xen-4.x tree anymore, I found it in
old releases. But I'll find a way to present backend as well.

num_bufs should be set by xl tool according to domain config file, but
we don't have patch for xl yet (it's done manually via xenstore-write in
our setup. Fairly ugly)
