Re: [Xen-devel] [PATCH v4 09/10] libxl: call hotplug scripts for nic devices from libxl

This observation needs to be reworked into a suitable form and placed
as a comment here in the code:

And the semantics need to be clearly explained.  In particular, this
is an interface that is supposed to be implemented by multiple
providers for different platforms.

I _think_ what is happening is that `num_exec' is always 0 for
everything but vifs.  For vifs libxl__get_hotplug_script_info is
always called with num_exec==0 for the actual PV vif (Xen PV
interface) but may also be called with num_exec==1 for the ioemu
device, but I may be wrong.

Urgh!  This is a pretty nasty use of goto.
