Define Defbool as struct analagous to the C type, and define the type
'defboolVal' that represent true, false, and default defbool values.

Implement Set, Unset, SetIfDefault, IsDefault, Val, and String functions
on Defbool so that the type can be used in Go analagously to how its
used in C.

Finally, implement fromC and toC functions.

The R-b stands, just adding in a comment:

I implemented some tests for these methods to make sure everything
worked as expected (they did); but there's an unexpected side-effect:

-  *_test.go files cannot `import "C"`
- The fromC / toC methods aren't exported

So it's not possible to do the following check:

  var b Defbool

  b.Set(true)
  cb, err := b.toC()
  if ( !C.libxl_defbool_val(cb) ) {
    // report an error
  }

defbool_test.go can't `import "C"`, so it can't call
C.libxl_defbool_val().  We could make an external xenlighttest package,
but that wouldn't be able to call toC().

(I suppose we could write "proxy" functions for every such function we
might want to check, but that seems excessive.)

Yeah, this is unfortunate.

If by "proxy" functions you mean something like:

func libxlDefboolVal(db Defbool) bool {
        return C.libxl_defbool_val(C.libxl_defbool(db))
}

I agree it could be a bit excessive. But, it might be necessary in
order to leverage go test. And, we could make sure that those extra
"proxy" functions are only included in test builds (maybe by making
internal package to house them).

Maybe there is a better solution to this. I'll need to think about it some more.

I mean, we already copy the source files over somewhere else.  We could
generate ctestproxies.go, and make a xenlighttestable package which
includes that file (and the _test.go files), and a xenlight package
which doesn't.

But I'd say that's a lower priority at this point.
