I really don't like the general design of this patch, even
ignoring all the code bugs. I think this entire patch is
really just a solution in search of a problem. Offline migration
is already possible with existing libvirt APIs:

   domsrc = virDomainLookupByName(connsrc, "someguest");
   xml = virDomainGetXMLDesc(domsrc);
   domdst virDomainDefine(conndst, xml);

This proposed patch does not offer enough (or indeed any) compelling
benefit over the above, to make it worth the including these hacks.

NACK to the entire patch.
