[libvirt] [PATCH v2] libvirt: xen: do not use ioemu type for any emulated NIC

Did you have something like below in mind?

Subject: [PATCH] libvirt: xen: do not use ioemu type for any emulated NIC

When using the xm/xend stack to manage instances there is a bug
that causes the emulated interfaces to be unusable when the vif
config contains type=ioemu.

The current code already has a special quirk to not use this
keyword if no specific model is given for the emulated NIC
(defaulting to rtl8139).
Essentially it works because regardless of the type argument,i
the Xen stack always creates emulated and paravirt interfaces and
lets the guest decide which one to use. So neither xl nor xm stack
actually require the type keyword for emulated NICs.

[v2: move code around to have the exception in one case together]
