Please try xen-3.2-testing.hg:16856 (this goes for BSD/IA64 too). I reverted
to the ioemu/osdep.c way of checking for posix_memalign(), and moved the
implementation to a proper source file so it cannot possibly leak out of
tools/libxc (which xg_private.h unfortunately does for some reason).

3.1-testing does not have this issue as I did not backport this changeset in
the first place (doesn't apply cleanly and I'm not wanting to fix and test
