It is not permitted to edit the VERS clause for a version in a release of Xen.

Revert xendevicemodel_set_irq_level()'s inclusion in .so.1.2 and bump the the
library minor version to .so.1.4 instead.

Fixes: 5d752df85f ("xen/dm: Introduce xendevicemodel_set_irq_level DM op")

Critical to include in 4.15, as this is an ABI breakage.  Reverting the broken
change doesn't look to be a practical option.

I am sorry for the breakage, I admit I didn't know that
"It is not permitted to edit the VERS clause for a version in a release 
of Xen."

To be honest, its not Xen specific.  Its any shared object with a stable
API/ABI.

It is explicitly fine to bump the minor version to add new things, but
you must never change the ABI of one which has been released.
