The corresponding libvirt support for this change was added to libvirt.git
in 716be2570a38bc92581e31e3fec6b1ca92302c1e

ÂÂÂÂlibxl: Use libxentoollog in preference to libxenctrl if available.

The contents of our output libvirt push gate is nowÂd5a0cf10 which is after
that change.

Therefore I have reapplied.

MINIOS_UPSTREAM_REVISION was unchanged in the interim.

QEMU_TRADITION_REVISION had since progressed to 569eac99e8dd which is after
9fad9ed28583, the commit needed here so I have dropped that hunk. Note that
9fad9ed28583 turned out to be harmless even without the corresponding
xen.git change (this patch) since all it did was add until now non-existent
 path to the include path and rpath-link.
