Ok, I took this path as it seemed rather straight forward after fixing
other issues.

I have done the following testing with attached patch and see no leaks. 
Note:  the 'crashed power state' and 'rename-restart' patches I
submitted earlier were applied on the test rig as well.

- Multiple reboot from within guest and 'xm reboot'
- Multiple localhost migrations (followed by reboots)
- Multiple save/restore
- Multiple suspend/resume (managed domains)
- Multiple checkpoints
- Multiple shutdows from with guest and 'xm shut'
- Crash guest with 'on_crash=preserve', followed by 'xm dump-core' and
'xm destroy' of preserved vm
- Crash guest with 'on_crash=rename-restart', followed by 'xm dump-core'
and 'xm destroy' of renamed vm
- Crash guest with 'on_crash=restart'
- Multiple 'xm network-[attach|detach]

All of these tests were performed on PV as well as HVM guests, where it
makes sense.
