libvirt support for Xen’s new libxenlight toolstack

Xen has had a long history in libvirt.  In fact, it was the first hypervisor supported by libvirt.  I’ve witnessed an incredible evolution of libvirt over the years and now not only does it support managing many hypervisors such as Xen, KVM/QEMULXCVirtualBoxhyper-vESX, etc., but it also supports managing a wide range of host subsystems used in a virtualized environment such as storage pools and volumes, networks, network interfaces, etc.  It has really become the swiss army knife of virtualization management on Linux, and Xen has been along for the entire ride.
