Here several changes which improve the handling of Xen for me:

Thanks for the improvements Stefan. I'm currently on bereavement leave and will look at these patches when returning, unless someone beats me to it.


* 0001-libxl-Use-id-from-virDomainObj-inside-the-driver.patch
   This is a re-send as I initially submitted that as a reply to some
   discussion. Starting from the visibly broken libxlDomainGetInfo when
   creating or rebooting a guest with virt-manager, I replaced all usage
   of dom->id with the more stable vm->def->id.
* 0002-libxl-Set-disk-format-for-empty-cdrom-device.patch
   Fixes start of a guest after ejecting the iso image from a virtual
   CDROM drive (again using virt-manager).
* 0003-libxl-Implement-basic-video-device-selection.patch
   Should fix the occasional disagreement about the used VNC port and
   adds the ability to select the standard VGA graphics from Xen.
   VRAM size seemed to work with that. Only for Cirrus, while the qemu
   command-line looks good, ones seems to end up with 32M.

Note to people on the Xen list: I wonder whether libxenlight internally
should somehow should fix up the situation where a caller sets up the
video devices in the vfbs list but does not sync that with the information
in the build info. Question probably is what the semantics should be.
