Not really very much of the driver API itself yet. At most we're testing
operation of the 'test' driver for 15 or so virsh commands. We don't have
coverage of the Xen drivers really because that's more of a functional
or integration test than unit test & thus impossible to add to regular
make check in any way that would be reliable for all developers. The core
part of the test suite is coveraging the XML <-> SEXPR  conversions and
the XML <-> /etc/xen config files, and the capabilities stuff. 

We could probably do with adding a separate 'make xencheck' which does
a formal integration test against a running Xen HV instance from a known
starting point.
