[libvirt] [PATCH V2 3/4] libxl: start domain paused on migration dst

During the perform phase of migration, the domain is started on
the dst host in a running state if VIR_MIGRATE_PAUSED flag is not
specified.  In the finish phase, the domain is also unpaused if
VIR_MIGRATE_PAUSED flag is unset.  I've noticed this second unpause
fails if the domain was already unpaused following the perform phase.

This patch changes the perform phase to always start the domain
paused, and defers unpausing, if requested, to the finish phase.
Unpausing should occur in the finish phase anyhow, where the domain
can be properly destroyed if the perform phase fails and migration
is cancelled.
