[Xen-devel] [PATCH] add count-only option to DOM0_GETDOMAININFOLIST hypercall

signed-off-by: Mike D. Day <ncmike@xxxxxxxxxx>

When retreiving a list of domain info structs it would be helpful
to know the current domain count prior to making the hcall. This 
would make it simpler to allocate a return buffer of the 
appropriate size. 

Adding the six lines to the case for the GETDOMAININFOLIST dom0 op
allows the caller to retrieve only the count of the domains. The 
use model is as follows: 

    int number_domains;
    struct dom0_op info;
    info.u.getdomaininfolist.max_domains = 0;


    number_domains = info.u.getdomaininfolist.max_domains;

Having the number of domains, the caller can now allocate
a buffer of the correct size to get the actual domain

modify domain infolist hypercall to optionally return only a count of domains
