[libvirt] [PATCH v2 02/14] libxl: populate xenstore memory entries at startup, handle dom0_mem



libxl uses some xenstore entries for hints in memory management
(especially when starting new domain). This includes dom0 memory limit
and Xen free memory margin, based on current system state. Entries are
created at first function usage, so force such call at daemon startup,
which most likely will be before any domain startup.
Also prevent automatic memory management if dom0_mem= option passed to
xen hypervisor - it is known to be incompatible with autoballoon.

Changes in v2:
 - disable autoballoon when dom0_mem option detected
 - rebase on 1.0.6+
