[libvirt] [PATCH v3] 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.

Signed-off-by: Marek Marczykowski-Górecki <marmarek invisiblethingslab com>

Changes in v2:
 - disable autoballoon when dom0_mem option detected
 - rebase on 1.0.6+
Changes in v3:
 - improve comments and error messages
 - rename auto_autoballoon
