From: Nick Rosbrook <rosbrookn@ainfosec.com>

After Xen summit, we started the discussion in this[1] RFC thread
to figure out how to generate Go bindings for libxl. This series
implements that Go code generation using the existing IDL, and updates
the existing hand-written code in xenlight.go to use the generated

The goal of this series is to provide a good foundation for continued
development of the Go package.

These patches can also be found on my GitHub branch[2].
