If I'm reading this correctly, this is actually a fairly serious bug
in libxl -- it means that when using backend=tap with HVM domains,
qemu will actually *bypass entirely* the tapdisk process and access
the underlying file directly.

This should probably be backported, potentially as far back as 4.2.
