Given that the error is non-fatal, you might have a point.

However in case of xl, the user needs to ask for a file backend in order
to trigger a QEMU invocation. While in xencommons it is done
unconditionally.  One might know what is doing and might want to
configure a system without QEMU (on ARM or x86), and at the moment there
is no way to prevent xencommons from spawning it anyway.
Given the code freeze is probably not the right time to introduce
such a config option though.
