[one-users] Xen driver and automatic VNC port generation

It does work as long as it is opennebula generating the port numbers
(with 5900 as the base) and it does work for static port assignments:
GRAPHICS =[type="vnc", passwd="qwerty", port="5900"]
translates to "vncdisplay=0" that is translated by xen back to 5900...
and the template
GRAPHICS =[type="vnc", passwd="qwerty"]
translates to "vncdisplay=vmId" that is translated by xen back to
5900+vmid as intended
The current code translates port 5900 to vncdisplay 5900, xen then
adds another 5900, ending up listening on port 11800 while openebula
claims the port to be 5900! So, I am just offsetting the 5900 that is
going to be added by xen on the next step!
What is the situation where opennebula is not the generator of the
port number? I have tested it successfully with and without port
numbers on the template, and I think of no usecase where this fails as
long as VNC_BASE_PORT=5900...
