Going back to what you wrote in the previous email, in what way this
patch breaks the case when an initial domain is started after a Xenstore
stub domain?

Assuming that we are talking about a PV initial domain on x86, the
following check

if (xen_pv_domain() && !xen_start_info->store_evtchn)
usage = LOCAL;
will return false (because store_evtchn is set), therefore usage will
remain set to PV.
And the check:

if (xen_pv_domain() && xen_start_info->store_evtchn)
xenstored_ready = 1;
will return true so xenstored_ready is going to be set to 1.
