[Libguestfs] [PATCH] Daemon: fix handling of errors from xread.



This caused me to waste about 3 hours looking for a non-existent "data
corrupter" bug, which turned out to be the result of not checking the
return value of xread ...

Rich.

Subject: [PATCH 1/3] Daemon: fix handling of errors from xread.

If xread returns -1, that indicates a read error and we should exit.
Note that xread has already printed the error message.
