There is a subtle behavioural change here, which is that if anything
which is now done in _setup fails then the result is a call to
dss->callback( ..,..,ERROR_FAIL) rather than _start returning

I think this is probably a reasonable and correct change, but I think it
is worth mentioning in the commit log.

That said, I also wonder if the actual check for netbuffer_enabled (the
only such failure in practice) ought to be moved up such that it stays
in _start along with the other similar checks, i.e. _start would do:

    if (libxl_defbool_val(info->netbuf) && !libxl__netbuffer_enabled(gc)) {
            LOG(ERROR, "Remus: No support for network buffering");
            rc = ERROR_FAIL;
            goto out;

while _setup would do:

    if (libxl_defbool_val(info->netbuf)) {
        // MAYBE : assert(libxl__netbuffer_enabled(gc))
        rds->device_kind_flags |= (1 << LIBXL__DEVICE_KIND_VIF);
