xc: split xc non-upstream bindings into xcext module.

move anything which is not provided by upstream libxc and the
associated ocaml bindings in a separate xcext library to ease
replacement of xc library by upstream version.

Some of this functionality could potentially be upstreamed straight
away but other bits rely on stuff from the XCP hypervisor patch queue.

One change of not is that Xcext.hvm_check_pvdriver expects that domid is always
an HVM domain. This matches the existing callsites (and the name) and reduces
cross talk between xc and xcext.

This is breaking xiu. as i said before the xc C library in XCP is different than the one in opensource; There's an injection layer that give the ability to catch stuff and redirect them to userspace, where we can simulate lots of things. Last time i checked this was still used by a bunch of people for testing.
