libxc: Don't call set_pod_target in case of previous memory failure

The while() loop in the memory allocation section of the hvm builder
is where the actual check for failure of memory alloction happens.  If
the domain is being built in PoD mode, however, this value may be
clobbered by a call to xc_domain_set_pod_target() before erroring out.
There is a very small chance that after xc_domain_populate_physmap()
fails, that somehow set_pod_target() will succeed, leaving a domain
with only a partially created address space.

This patch modifies the builder to check that there have not been any
errors so far before calling xc_domain_set_pod_target().
