Sure.  And while I wanted to access xsi vai xen_start_info, 
the

   xen_start_info = &xsi 

seemed a bit awkward.  Not sure if I should switch to xsi.  Thoughts?

Hrm, you may be right.  I know that dom0 boots fine with this, but that
maybe because it defaults those values to 0.  I'll kill the if().

Yeah, good idea though none of the messages get out if our shared_info
page isn't setup correctly, which I learned during my testing of this
patch, was the value most likely to get hosed.
