    libxl: prefer qdisk for <driver name='file'>
    The libxl driver currently sets the disk backend to
    LIBXL_DISK_BACKEND_TAP when <driver name='file'> is specified
    in the <disk> config.  qdisk should be prefered with this
    configuration, otherwise existing configuration such as the
    following, which worked with the old Xen driver, will not work
    with the libxl driver
      <disk type='file' device='cdrom'>
        <driver name='file'/>
        <source file='/path/to/some/iso'/>
        <target dev='hdc' bus='ide'/>
    In addition, tap performs poorly compared to qdisk.
