Unfortunately I think this will result in any valid rc's any path happens
to have being discarded in favour of a generic ERROR_FAIL.

If we are going to band aid this for 4.6 then I think setting rc =
ERROR_FAIL just after the libxl__domain_device_construct_rdm error handling
might be better.

Even better would be to put the rc = ERROR_FAIL into the various if (ret)
blocks. I don't think that would be an unacceptably large patch (it's 3-4
sites from what I can see) and it would be closer to heading in the right
