I've start looking at this, and the fix would be easy: removing the
creation of the xen-platform from QEMU, and let xl ask QEMU to create

But if one uses an older version of one project (qemu/xl) and a newer
version of the other, then we can end-up with no xen-platform or two
xen-platform ...

So should we try to be clever about this, or just backport patchs for
both qemu and xl?

"Clever" option: There is a recent patch for xl that make use of
the -nodefault QEMU's command line option. So if it's present, we could
ask QEMU to not add xen-platform, and xl can decide.
