I have one question about this fix.
If I set XEN_DOMCTL_CDF_vpci for dom0 pvh in create_dom0, then in
sanitise_domain_config or arch_sanitise_domain_config I have no
knowledge on whether I am dom0 or not. I can check if I'm PVH but not if dom0.
This would be needed to add a warning if this flag is set but we are not dom0 

Any ideas?
