    libxl: Restore scheduling parameters after migrate in best-effort fashion
   
    Commit 3b4adba ("tools/libxl: include scheduler parameters in the
    output of xl list -l") added scheduling parameters to the set of
    information collected by libxl_retrieve_domain_configuration(), in
    order to report that information in `xl list -l`.
   
    Unfortunately, libxl_retrieve_domain_configuration() is also called by
    the migration / save code, and the results passed to the restore /
    receive code.  This meant scheduler parameters were inadvertently
    added to the migration stream, without proper consideration for how to
    handle corner cases.  The result was that if migrating from a host
    running one scheduler to a host running a different scheduler, the
    migration would fail with an error like the following:
   
    libxl: error: libxl_sched.c:232:sched_credit_domain_set: Domain 1:Getting domain sched credit: Invalid argument
    libxl: error: libxl_create.c:1275:domcreate_rebuild_done: Domain 1:cannot (re-)build domain: -3
   
    Luckily there's a fairly straightforward way to set parameters in a
    "best-effort" fashion.  libxl provides a single struct containing the
    parameters of all schedulers, as well as a parameter specifying which
    scheduler.  Parameters not used by a given scheduler are ignored.
    Additionally, the struct contains a parameter to specify the
    scheduler.  If you specify a specific scheduler,
    libxl_domain_sched_params_set() will fail if there's a different
    scheduler.  However, if you pass LIBXL_SCHEDULER_UNKNOWN, it will use
    the value of the current scheduler for that domain.
   
    In domcreate_stream_done(), before calling libxl__build_post(), set
    the scheduler to LIBXL_SCHEDULER_UNKNOWN.  This will propagate
    scheduler parameters from the previous instantiation on a best-effort
    basis.
