feature-* nodes are supposed to be optional and it appears that
qemu-xen-traditional's qdisk does not implement it. This particular node
indicates support for BLKIF_OP_FLUSH_DISKCACHE.

extras/mini-os/blkfront.c should deal with this. However it
unconditionally uses BLKIF_OP_FLUSH_DISKCACHE in blkfront_sync, I'm not
sure what the fallback (if any) is supposed to be. I doubt it can be
safely ignored, but that might be the only/best option?

qemu-xen (the upstream qemu) does seem to implement this feature, FWIW.
