I haven't looked at what's actually happening yet, but what should be
happening is that the pvops kernel should not advertise SUSPEND_CANCEL
since it doesn't yet support it. So xm save -c should call
xc_domain_resume with the fast argument set to 0, to do slow path
resumption, and that slow path should be able to handle resuming on
the same host where it suspended. Slow path resumption from checkpoint
was supported in the pre-pvops kernel.
