[Xen-devel] [PATCH] tools/libxl: Fix free() of wild pointer in libxl__initiate_device_remove()

libxl__initiate_device_remove() had a preexisting error path issue where
libxl_dominfo_dispose() could be called on a libxl_dominfo object before it
had been initialised with libxl_dominfo_init().

This was safe until c/s ab44401 added the pointer ssid_label, which point
libxl_dominfo_dispose() free()s.

Unconditionally initialise info in libxl__initiate_device_remove() before
taking an error path which will free it.
