Linux based Stub-domain

As the current stubdomain based on minios is difficult to maintain, we have worked on a stubdomain based on Linux. This helps to use QEMU upsteam in the stubdom with little change.

So first I will present how a Linux based stubdomain is built and lauched, and the difficulties around it. Then, to see if this is a viable option, I will show disk and network benchmarks to compare it with a traditional QEMU in dom0 configuration.

To finish, I will present the current limitations of this type of stubdomains.
