The only issue with this patch is that it breaks migration back to older
libvirt.  We generally try to not break migration to old libvirt if you migrate
from new libvirt to old libvirt with the same XML that would be also valid for
the old libvirt.  Since there is no change in the XML and we start using the
'heads' attribute and we now pass that value to qemu you cannot migrate back to
some older libvirt.

NACK, we need to figure this out.
