I've just checked in the changes from Jeremy and Daniel to make the
vncserver for HVM domains only listen on the interface.
This is a change of behaviour in that off-host vncclients will no
longer be able to connect by default.  See changeset comments for how
to restore the old behaviour.

[HVM/vncserver] Implement a 'vnclisten' option to limit the interface
that the VNC server from qemu listens on.

Defaults to only listen on

The old behaviour (listen on all interfaces) can be restored, by
- changing the system-wide default in /etc/xen/xend-config.sxp by adding:
(vnc-listen '')
- changing individual domain config files by adding:

Also allows specifying the hostname associated with an interface to limit
to that interface.
