Scripts are called from libxl__device_{disk/nic}_add, in the call to
libxl__wait_device_connection libxl waits for the device backend to
reach state 2 and then it executes hotplug scripts.

The function device_hotplug in libxl_device.c takes care of most of the
work, aided by OS specific helpers (see libxl_linux.c and libxl_netbsd.c
for the OS specific implementation).
