But it means that we will scrub all pages for all domains no matter how
it died, which is contrary to the statement in the comment which says
that we don't scrub a cleanly shut down domain.

From what I can see, the only pages Xen won't scrub are pages handed
back via decrease reservation, but I don't see how that is relevant in
this context.
