I just added the following:

 * virDomainReboot:
 * @domain: a domain object
 * @flags: extra flags for the reboot operation, not used yet
 * Reboot a domain, the domain object is still usable there after but
 * the domain OS is being stopped for a restart.
 * Note that the guest OS may ignore the request.
 * Returns 0 in case of success and -1 in case of failure.
virDomainReboot(virDomainPtr domain, unsigned int flags)

there is also a new "virsh reboot" command to test it. 
However there when trying it I saw that the guest OS shutdown in reboot mode:

Turning off quotas:
Unmounting pipe file systems:
Please stand by while rebooting the system...
md: stopping all md devices.
md: md0 switched to read-only mode.
Restarting system.

  but the domain was not relaunched by default. I guess this also requires
to set up specific xenstore attributes so that the domain is actually restarted.
So not completely done yet.
