libxl: do slow resume after failed migration attempt

both of the current callers for libxl_domain_resume are calling after
a migration has failed, one is failure to suspend on the sender and
the other is failure to start on the destination, both leading to a
resume attempt on the sender.

However in the first case, failure to suspend, there is no guarantee
that the guest has made it as far as the suspend hypercall and
therefore the fast resume method, which frobs the hypercall return to
indicate a cancelled suspend, cannot safely be used since it will
corrupt %eax/%rax.

For the second case, failure to start on destination, I don't think it
really matters if the resume is fast or slow.

Therefore always use the slow/uncooperative version of xc_domain_resume from

This makes a PV domain which failed to suspend (e.g. because the core
Linux PM infrastructure within the guest didn't allow it) recover
