xl: Perform minimal validation of virtual disk file while parsing config file

This patch performs some very basic validation on the virtual disk
file passed through the config file. This validation ensures that we
don't go too far with the initialization like spawn qemu and more
while there could be some potentially fundamental issues.

[ Patch fixed up to work with PHYSTYPE_EMPTY 22808:6ec61438713a -iwj ]

1 To build:
3 1. ./mkbuildtree [<arch>]
4 NB. You can override paths to Xen sources and a (stub) XenLinux
5 build tree via the XEN and XL environment variable.
7 2. make -C /path/to/kernel/build M=$PWD modules
8 NB. This is your native kernel build tree (or a distro provided
9 stub), not the XenLinux sources referred to in step 1.
10 NB. If you are cross compiling, you need to set ARCH and
11 CROSS_COMPILE too.
13 You get four modules, xen-platform-pci.ko, xen-vbd.ko, xen-vnif.ko and
14 xen-balloon.ko. Load xen-platform-pci first, and then
15 whichever of xen-vbd, xen-vnif and xen-balloon.ko you happen to need.
