[Xen-devel] [PATCH v2 1/2] libxl: fix _SC_GETPW_R_SIZE_MAX usage

If sysconf(_SC_GETPW_R_SIZE_MAX) fails for any reason just use an initial
buffer size of 2048. This is not a critical failure, and the code that
makes use of this buffer is able to expand it later if required.

Changes since v1:
 - Use a default buffer size if sysconf(_SC_GETPW_R_SIZE_MAX) fails for any
   reason, this should not be a critical failure.
