Hi Juergen,

On the 2019 Xen developer summit there was agreement that the Xen
hypervisor should gain support for a hierarchical name-value store
similar to the Linux kernel's sysfs.

In the beginning there should only be basic support: entries can be
added from the hypervisor itself only, there is a simple hypercall
interface to read the data.

Add a feature document for setting the base of a discussion regarding
the desired functionality and the entries to add.

I think you also want to update SUPPORT.MD with the status of the feature.

I will send a patch doing this when all patches up to patch 6 have
gone in, as those are needed at least.

Other than that:
