I've changed the series according to your comments, and I'm waiting for
IanJ review. I also have NetBSD hotplug & vfb/vkb series ready, that
will come after this is committed. If you want I can start posting them,
I didn't do so yet because they depend a lot on this.

Sorry, what I've said is not accurate. Qemu sets state to "closed" on
shutdown/destroy, what doesn't seem to work is the disconnection by
setting online to 0 or status to 5 while Qemu is running.

Maybe we should not call libxl_device_disk_add/remove when the backend
is Qemu for cdrom_insert and instead perform the params remove/addition
that you exposed before directly on cdrom_insert.
