Re: [Libvir] PATCH: More useful error messages with missing certs

On the server end if you try to start the server with TLS enabled and you
don't have the certs setup, you get a cryptic:

gnutls_certificate_set_x509_trust_file: Error while reading file.

Rather useless the gnutls error message not telling you what file was

Similarly with virsh:

 # ~/usr/bin/virsh  --connect  qemu://localhost/system list
 libvir: Remote error : Error while reading file.

Since GNU TLS doesn't even tell you the actual problem - was it wrong
permissions, or missing file altogether, I decided its better to do an
explicit 'stat' check ahead of time.
