If the user is specifying the port, we should just use it and be done. 
That is how the VNC port is handled too.  If user has specified a vnc
port, then we just use it.  Otherwise, call libxlNextFreeVncPort to find
a free one.

libxlFindFreeVNCPort only binds to the port to see if it is in use.  If
not in use, it closes the socket, sets the corresponding bit in the
bitmap, and returns the port.  Caller then knows the port is free and
available for use, e.g. binding, listening, connecting, or whatever it
pleases to do with the port.

IMO, we could have

static int libxlNextFreePort(virtBitmapPtr bitmap, int startPort, int

which is functionally equivalent to libxlNextFreeVncPort(), but examines
startPort through startPort+numPorts.
