In a long encoded xdr stream, we might run out of allocated xdr space.
In some situations it is possibly to reset the xdr buffer to a previuos
good state and send a parial list, which is better then just BUGing as
today or completely failing the xdr.

* define such API that can move the xdr pointer to a good known
  state before the failed encoding.
