Subject[PATCH 3/3] xen/pv-on-hvm kexec+kdump: reset PV devices in kexec or crash kernel
After triggering a crash dump in a HVM guest, the PV backend drivers
will remain in Connected state. When the kdump kernel starts the PV
drivers will skip such devices. As a result, no root device is found and
the vmcore cant be saved.

A similar situation happens after a kexec boot, here the devices will be
in the Closed state.

With this change all frontend devices with state XenbusStateConnected or
XenbusStateClosed will be reset by changing the state file to
Closing/Closed/Initializing. This will trigger a disconnect in the
backend drivers. Now the frontend drivers will find the backend drivers
in state Initwait and can connect.
