Wierd, I'm rather puzzelled as to why you'd get the 'Activated hypervisor
sub-driver' message, but not immediately see a 'Trying XenD sub-driver'
message, since there's only one line of code in between them which is a
simple assignment...

        DEBUG0("Trying hypervisor sub-driver");
        if (drivers[XEN_UNIFIED_HYPERVISOR_OFFSET]->open(conn, auth, flags) ==
            VIR_DRV_OPEN_SUCCESS) {
            DEBUG0("Activated hypervisor sub-driver");
            priv->opened[XEN_UNIFIED_HYPERVISOR_OFFSET] = 1;
        }
    }

    /* XenD is required to suceed if root.
     * If it fails as non-root, then the proxy driver may take over
     */
    DEBUG0("Trying XenD sub-driver");
    if (drivers[XEN_UNIFIED_XEND_OFFSET]->open(conn, auth, flags) ==
        VIR_DRV_OPEN_SUCCESS) {
        DEBUG0("Activated XenD sub-driver");
        priv->opened[XEN_UNIFIED_XEND_OFFSET] = 1;


DEBUG: xen_unified.c: xenUnifiedOpen (Trying hypervisor sub-driver)
DEBUG: xen_unified.c: xenUnifiedOpen (Activated hypervisor sub-driver)
DEBUG: xen_unified.c: xenUnifiedOpen (Trying XenD sub-driver)
DEBUG: xen_unified.c: xenUnifiedOpen (Activated XenD sub-driver)
...snip...

One other problem I've noticed is a race condition on the @introduceDomain
watch. The watch fires as soon as the domain ID is added to xenstore.
We then query the name & uuid, but occassionally we query before XenD has
had a chance to fill them in.

I think that upon failure, we'll have to add a timer callback to retry
the lookup after 500ms, to take account of possible race. I'm going to
give this a try...
