This patch series adds the following features to xl and libxenlight:
- network-{attach,list,detach}
- block-{attach,list,detach}

Some details :
- network-attach accel and rate parameters are not handled yet (they are not in
xm neither).
- devid attribution for PV nics now starts from 0 for nics described in
configuration file (used to start at 1, which made xm freeze when attaching more
than one PV nic, probably because of nextDeviceID xenstore entry).
- devid attribution do not rely on nextDeviceID xenstore entry in libxl
(comments, in python code, suggest this entry to be optional).
