I wouldn't like to say for sure but it is probably no particular reason
other than Hysterical Raisins...

I suppose the structure from xc_domain_getinfo being partially digested
is helpful to some callers. On the other hand xc_domain_getinfolist gets
the list in a single hypercall which takes the domlistlock so I guess it
is in some sense a more consistent snapshot.
