Current check for DM_OP availability in osdep_xendevicemodel_open will
always fail, because using DOMID_INVALID as the domain parameter will
make the hypervisor return -ESRCH, which will disable the usage of
the DOM_OP interface.

Fix this by checking the errno code of the test ioctl against
the privcmd unimplemented errno.

I'm not sure when this was introduced, because it seems like it's been
broken from the start, as the hypervisor always had the
rcu_lock_remote_domain_by_id check and the userspace library also
seems to have always just checked that the test ioctl would return
success.

Forget about this patch, it's my fault for not realizing Linux privcmd
checks that the num is != 0 before issuing the hypercall.

Sorry for the noise.
