The libxl library allows a libxl_domain_config object to be serialized
from/to a JSON string. Use this to allow testing of the XML to
libxl_domain_config conversion process. Test XML is converted to
libxl_domain_config, which is then serialized to json. A json template
corresponding to the test XML is converted to a libxl_domain_config
object using libxl_domain_config_from_json(), and then serialized
back to json using libxl_domain_config_to_json(). The two json
docs are then compared.

Using libxl to convert the json template to a libxl_domain_config
object and then back to json provides a simple way to account for
any changes or additions to the json representation across Xen

I've been looking at this series for the past days, and taking into
account the comments that Jim mentioned yesterday are ammended, and this
looks good to me:

Thanks, I've pushed it now.

It adds a really nice piece of testing infra for libxl_domain_configs.
Maybe in the future more tests could be added in (in addition to the
CPUID one that Marek has planned).

Agreed. Testing of the libxl_domain_config generation code was long overdue.
