[Libguestfs] [PATCH libguestfs] fish: don't read freed memory



Using the latest code, I was seeing a failure of the remote alloc part
of the test-remote.sh test:

i.e., this would fail:

  make check -C regressions TESTS=test-remote.sh

Running valgrind on it, I got this:

  $ libtool --mode=execute valgrind ../fish/guestfish --remote alloc test.img 10M

The fix is to ensure that we close the file handle *after*,
not before calling xdr_destroy.

Subject: [PATCH libguestfs] fish: don't read freed memory

* fish/rc.c (rc_remote): Close file handle only *after* xdr_destroy,
because that latter may flush its file handle (implicated via
xdrstdio_create).
