I see the problem is that with the v2 migration protocol, we simply
call into the normal  virDomainGetXMLDesc API call. This was fixed
in v3 migration to use the virDomainMigrateBegin call to get the
XML.

I really think we should invest our time in getting QEMU to provide us
with event notifications, rather than trying to hack around it by using
info block. It really shouldn't be this hard to get an event from QEMU
when they already have the data we need.
