Subject: tools/xenstore: dont unlink connection object twice

A connection object of a domain with associated stubdom has two
parents: the domain and the stubdom. When cleaning up the list of
active domains in domain_cleanup() make sure not to unlink the
connection twice from the same domain. This could happen when the
domain and its stubdom are being destroyed at the same time leading
to the domain loop being entered twice.

Additionally don't use talloc_free() in this case as it will remove
a random parent link, leading eventually to a memory leak. Use
talloc_unlink() instead specifying the context from which the
connection object should be removed.

This is XSA-233.
