XEN_DOMCTL_getdomaininfo itself in order to be able to check for
domains having been destroyed. At the same time this flag will inhibit
the domain to be migrated, as this wouldn't be a very wise thing to do.

In case of a later support of a rebootable Dom0 this flag will allow to
recognize a xenstore domain already being present to connect to.

The XSM hook changes look good.  If XSM_XS_PRIV is ever used for a
permission other than getdomaininfo, the comment in xsm.h will be
inaccurate, but I'm not sure if that will ever be needed.
