How much do we care about forward/backwards compat here?

One specific potential wrinkle:

I suspect rumpkernel changeset 91d5623 cannot pass the rump kernel push
gate without this change in the xen being used (which is the output opf
the Xen gate), and this change cannot pass the xen-unstable push gate
without the rumpkernel one, so we have an impasse.

I think we probably need libxc to handle both __RUMPRUN__ and
__RUMPUSER_XEN_, at least for the time being (which might be a very
short time while the other change passes its gate).
