Well the virtual network stuff is local to the host only, and so it
is even more reliable if you just boot the guest in question from
the kernel+initrd directly, instead indirectly giving it the kernel+
initrd via a dodgy PXE server. 

We have a hammer, but I don't think we should use it in this case.
