[libvirt] [PATCH V2 1/2] libxl: fix reporting of maximum memory



The libxl driver reports different values of maximum memory depending
on state of a domain. If inactive, maximum memory value is reported
correctly. When active, maximum memory is derived from max_pages value
returned by the XEN_SYSCTL_getdomaininfolist sysctl operation. But
max_pages can be changed by toolstacks and does not necessarily
represent the maximum memory a domain can use during its active
lifetime.

A better location for determining a domain's maximum memory is the
/local/domain/<id>/memory/static-max node in xenstore. This value
is set from the libxl_domain_build_info.max_memkb field when creating
the domain. Currently it cannot be changed nor can its value be
exceeded by a balloon operation. From libvirt's perspective, always
reporting maximum memory with virDomainDefGetMemoryTotal() will produce
the same results as reading the static-max node in xenstore.
