[Xen-devel] [PATCH] Add interface name definition support for xend-relocation-address

this is patch to add a new feature for xend-relocation-address option to support definition by interface name which can be useful for people having e.g. a cluster environment with multiple network interfaces on all of the machines with only one reserved to be registered to a private cluster network. This way they won't need to specify the relocation address manually on all the machines but just simple providing the interface name to get the IP address from would do the job (all the machines have to have this interface named the same to make it working, of course).

Technically it reads the interface name and gets it's IP address using ioctl call of SIOCGIFADDR and if the interface doesn't have the address, i.e. if non-existing interface or hostname was provided the original ifname is returned to preserve the old behaviour.
