That check seems pretty odd to me at first but the commit message of
22842:ccfa0527893e does a good job of explaining why so: 

Acked-by: Ian Campbell <ian.campbell@xxxxxxxxxx>

although it's not clear why libxl__domain_make doesn't just set an
invalid value as it's first act and save the callers the effort, the net
result would still be the correct semantics for libxl_domid_valid_guest
when the function exits.
