[libvirt] [PATCH v3] Add warning message to XML definition files stored on disk



Users often edit XML file stored in configuration directory
thinking of modifying a domain/network/pool/etc. Thus it is wise
to let them know they are using the wrong way and give them hint.
---
diff to v2:
 - remove redundant flag VIR_XML_EMIT_WARNING
 - remove enum, pass const string instead
 - don't translate warning message

diff to v1:
 - instead of pointing users to web, write down the actual virsh command
 - write to passed FD instead of buffer
