That does not appear to make any difference.

As far as I can see I need to ensure libxl__sigchld_needed gets called,
which means I need to ensure perhaps_sigchld_needed gets called
and chldmode_ours returns true. As 'creating' is false, in
libxl_sigchld_owner_libxl mode, I appear to need a child for
this to work. I can set it to libxl_sigchld_owner_libxl_always
or libxl_sigchld_owner_libxl_always_selective_reap and then
set it back. The code below is the minimum I can find that gets it
to work:

#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <libxl.h>

#define LIBXL_API_VERSION 0x040200

/* compile with:
 * gcc -g -O0 xentest.c -o xentest -lxenlight

fixctx (libxl_ctx *ctx)
  const libxl_childproc_hooks libxl_child_hooks = {
    .chldowner = libxl_sigchld_owner_libxl_always
  libxl_childproc_setmode (ctx, &libxl_child_hooks, 0);
  libxl_childproc_setmode (ctx, NULL, 0);

test ()
  libxl_ctx *ctx = NULL;
  if (libxl_ctx_alloc (&ctx, LIBXL_VERSION, XTL_NONE, NULL))
      fprintf (stderr, "libxl_ctx_alloc failed");
      exit (1);
  fixctx (ctx);
  libxl_ctx_free (ctx);

main (int argc, char **argv)
  printf ("Before:\n");
  system ("ls -la /proc/self/fd");
  test ();
  printf ("\nAfter:\n");
  system ("ls -la /proc/self/fd");
  exit (0);
