[Xen-devel] [PATCH v2 1/2] tools/console: reset tty when xenconsole fails

If xenconsole (the client program) fails, it calls err.  This would
previously neglect to reset the user's terminal to sanity.  Use atexit
to do so.

This routinely happens in Xen 4.4 RC5 with pygrub because libxl
writes the value "" to the tty xenstore key when using xenconsole.
After this patch this just results in a harmless error message.
