Hi, after migrating to libvirt/libxl according to:


I've noticed that my Xen PV domains are being launched by 
qemu-system-i386 running under root privileges.

I am wondering why is this? Previously no qemu process was used.

If qemu is needed for some reason, are there any guidelines for non-root
