Request/response pairs are serialised in the C xenstored. Further, multiple
in-flight transactions are allowed (although the rather basic conflict
detection means that all but the first to commit will be failed).

We might move to a smarter xenstored, but overall higher parallel
performance of one domain's xenbus implementation is probably not a very
important thing to optimise?
