In this declaration:

We need information about what this "tmpdisk" is.  All of the other
parameters here are input parameters, except as otherwise noted in the

Also I'm not convinced that "tmpdisk" is quite the right name.  You
also need to explain the distinction between "disk" and "tmpdisk".


   const libxl_device_disk *disk; /* as specified by user */
   libxl_device_disk localdisk;
      /* Should be zeroed by caller on entry.  Will be filled in by
       * bootloader machinery; represents the local attachment of the
       * disk for the benefit of the bootloader.  Must be detached by
       * the caller using libxl__device_disk_local_detach, but only
       * after the domain's kernel and initramfs have been loaded into
       * memory and the file references disposed of. */


The implementation looks sane.
