Yeah, We probably have some serious concerns if this fails. And given that
libxlAddDom0 happens early while bootstrapping the libxl module, it might be
good to warn the user (following similar pattern throughout the rest of the code):

virReportError(VIR_ERR_INTERNAL_ERROR, "%s",
               _("libxl_get_physinfo_info failed"));

or perhaps simply VIR_WARN?

Yeap, that's what I was thinking too.
