Exploiting the talloc clean up routines to close the Xen interfaces
is cumbersome, specially when atexit can be used to the same effect.

Wait, what ?  Why do we need to do this at all ?  xenstored can't be
restarted so if it exits we might as well leave whatever wreckage.

In practice, yes. But having those cleanups might make it easier to
find memory leaks. Why do we have cleanups in normal Xen tools before
exiting? The system is doing cleanup anyway... ;-)

AIUI the live update doesn't end up calling atexit ?

That's correct.
