There is a XenAPI driver in recent libvirt. Accessible with xenapi://hostname:port/

I'm not sure that 'suspend'/'resume' map to "managed save". suspend/resume
are basically just pausing CPUs afaik, and this is already done in libvirt
APIs.  Managed save is about saving guest state in a standard location
and automagically restoring from that upon guest boot.

Not that I'm aware of
