Well, if coLinux supports for file-backed virtual disks (and I think yes),=
then you can reuse the root_fs with some little changes: the device file=20
names are different, /dev/ubd# and something *like* /dev/cbd... (check on t=
coLinux site). You could add something in the early boot process to change=
the /etc/fstab content (i.e. keep two copies and load the right one; inspec=
/proc/cmdline to discover under what kernel you are running).
