Bug detailed description:

Create a HVM guest with any devices pass-throu statically, PCIE NIC or VF.
After We execute comand "xl cr hvm.conf" , xl complains that memory corruption
was detected. If there is no device pass-throu, this warning information will
not appear.

The similar issue also exists when we attach a device dynamically, but it does
not affect the pass-throu feature, Guest OS can use the pass-throu device even
through it complains memory corruption, it is just a warning information. 

It might imply some hide issues, so we report it as a P2 bug.

Reproduce steps:
1. Hide device in HVM config file
pci = [ '05:01.0' ]
2. Create HVM guest with xl command
xl create hvm.conf

You will see this warning information

Current result:
Warining information for xl create command:
*** glibc detected *** xl: malloc(): memory corruption: 0x000000000162c900 ***

Warining information for xl pci-attach command:
[root@vt-nhm7 ~]# xl pci-attach 2 05:10.1
*** glibc detected *** xl: corrupted double-linked list: 0x0000000001e667d0 ***

Expected result:

Basic root-causing log:
