I don't think it should: different backends could implement a different
pvcalls version. There is an handshake mechanism to agree on a version
of the protocol to use. It is probably not a good idea to expose this
specific version in the generic pvcalls header.

I don't think we can have nested transactions. For simplicity, I'll
ignore errors from xenbus_switch_state.
