Migrating a large, and potentially busy, domU will take more
time than neccessary due to excessive number of copying iterations.

Allow to host admin to control the number of iterations which
copy cumulated domU dirty pages to the target host.

The default remains 5, which means one initial iteration to copy the
entire domU memory, and up to 4 additional iterations to copy dirty
memory from the still running domU. After the given number of iterations
the domU is suspended, remaining dirty memory is copied and the domU is
finally moved to the target host.

This patch adjusts xl(1) and the libxl API.
External users check LIBXL_HAVE_DOMAIN_SUSPEND_PROPS for the availibility
of the new .max_iters property.
