You could write it to xenstore before attempting the qmp commands. That
just relies on the qmp remove failing gracefully for devices which
aren't actually attached.

You might also be able to come up with some complicated, prepare, do it,
commit in xenstore like approach -- but that's probably a) difficult (if
not impossibly due to races) and b) unnecessary.
