This patch converts XML without the source element
which virt-install makes as follows.

<disk type='file' device='cdrom'>    convert
  <target dev='hdc'/>              ----------->  disk = [ ",hdc:cdrom,r" ]
  <readonly/>
</disk>

[Detail]
1. This does not fail when the source element doesn't exist
   and device is CD-ROM.
2. This adjusts the size of source to 0 in calculating buflen
   when the source element doesn't exist.
3. This outputs source to the configuration file as before
   when the source element exists.
   And this doesn't output source to the configuration file
   when the source element doesn't exist.
4. This does not free source in cleanup when the source
   element doesn't exist.

This patch fixes to accept the following forms as mentioned above. 

  disk = [ ",hdc:cdrom,r" ]

I think that libvirt should analyze this form, because it exists
also in the sample of Xen. (/etc/xen/xmexample.hvm)
