On Debian systems, domains are saved there on shutdown/reboot of dom0
and restored on boot. So if something's there on a running system, it's
probably a domain which failed to save or restore properly for some
reason. In that case you might want to try to investigate why it failed
(look in the logs) or possibly restoring it first. But if you already
have a fresher instance of the problematic domain running, then I guess
it's OK to delete the dump file.
