XenServer (xenapi) boot from volume

Registered by Vish Ishaya on 2011-10-13

The XenServer driver doesn't deal with block_device_mapping. In order to support boot_from_volumes, it needs to parse the block device mapping info and connect to the required volumes. It also needs to clean up the volumes properly on terminate.
