libxl: disable autoballooning

Xen 4.12 introduced a CONFIG_DOM0_MEM option, which our xen package uses
to configure dom0 with a sensible initial memory value and disables
autoballooning. This patch changes libvirt to also disable autoballooning
by default. It can only be enabled with the 'autoballoon' setting in
libxl.conf. See jsc#SLE-3059 for more details.
