As before, _not_ the init function, the setdefault within libxl should
ensure that this is set to some value _before_ it is used. These changes
are just hiding libxl bugs.

Olaf, please can you use gdb to capture the stack trace so we can fix
this (and the other issue) properly in libxl instead of just hacking
around it in libvirt (which might also be appropriate for compat with
old libxl but shouldn't be done without also fixing libxl IMHO).
