Is libxl not already aware whether a domain is to be dmlite vs pv or hvm
based on the domain config?

As such can't it figure out the hardcoded set to use already without
actually needing to expose this in libxl API (until we actually have a
desire to expose such nobs to users)? Can't this work on resume just like
it does on create?

In libxl's API we tend to try and avoid opaque hex numbers, so the natural
result would be a struct full of libxl_defbool options, which IIRC already
get properly propagated and have handling for defaulting already in place.
