Can you use the c/s numbers, please?

It was not necessary to backout c/s 21834 as this wasn't the root cause.

Re-include c/s 21834 which takes over portability fixes from tools/console
to make libxl_bootloader.c build on NetBSD. Also use $(UTIL_LIBS) in the
Makefile as done in tools/console/Makefile.

blktapctl is build on Linux only. Introduce two API functions
(libxl_blktap_*) which I have discussed with Stefano
in end of June/beginning of July.
Implement the Linux API by moving the
Linux specific code from libxl.c into libxl_linux.c.
