Can you check the runstate in the vmstate change callback?  The runstate
to use is RUN_STATE_FINISH_MIGRATE (and then you revert if you get from
there to anything but RUN_STATE_POSTMIGRATE).


oh wait, those are the runstate for migration, xen's save-devices-state
command uses something else.  Luckily, the command is synchronous, so
management cannot "poll" the state as is the case for regular migration.
So a patch like this could provide the right runstates:

diff --git a/savevm.c b/savevm.c

(feel free to include it in your patches with Signed-off-by: Paolo

Alternatively, can you stop/restart emulation always (even on stop/cont
monitor commands) rather than just on migration?  That would make things
even simpler and not need anything like the above savevm.c change.
