[XEN PATCH for-4.17] libs/light: Propagate libxl__arch_domain_create() return code
Posted by Anthony PERARD 2 weeks, 2 days ago
Commit 34990446ca91 started to overwrite the `rc` value from
libxl__arch_domain_create(), thus error aren't propagated anymore.

Check `rc` value before doing the next thing.

Fixes: 34990446ca91 ("libxl: don't ignore the return value from xc_cpuid_apply_policy")

Was the issue that libxl__arch_domain_create() failed, but then
libxl__cpuid_legacy() succeeded.  rc was overwritten, so
libxl__build_pre() returns success?
