[Xen-devel] [PATCH 13/16] xen: Expect xenstore write to fail when restricted

From: Ross Lagerwall <ross.lagerwall@xxxxxxxxxx>

Saving the current state to xenstore may fail when running restricted
(in particular, after a migration). Therefore, don't report the error or
exit when running restricted.  Toolstacks that want to allow running
QEMU restricted should instead make use of QMP events to listen for
state changes.
