  Hum, I don't like too much adding more exported symbols

  That sounds a weak way to try to avoid a problem, we should
not rely on just compiler options to get the code to compile and link.

  My preference would be to use the patch to make them real internal
APIs without exporting all the functions, I think only xstrtol_i is
used by external programs (virsh and qemud), and maybe we can add only
that one to the list of exported symbols.
