Yes, the xenstore backend path is $1 and the action $2.

Hm, I wouldn't be on it. This is true in the most common scenario, where 
Dom0 (domain with id 0) runs all the backends. But if you are using a 
driver domain or a radically disagregated system (where control domain != 
hardware domain) this is no longer true. So in general you shouldn't make 
this assumption.

Linux already has some code to do this checking, but this also involves 
taking a lock in order to make sure there's only one hotplug script 
performing this check at the same time.

The Linux function that performs this checking is in:


And the caller is:


If you take a look, the call to check_device_sharing is protected with the 
"block" lock.
