[Libvir] [PATCH] Fix xen://hostname URIs with no trailing slash

It turns out that xmlParseURI gives an error if asked to parse the string "xen://".

This string arises because after a URI such as "xen://hostname" has been stripped of its server field, it becomes "xen://" on the remote end of the connection, and the failure of xmlParseURI causes the whole connection to fail.

I'm not sure of the best way to fix it. The attached patch is a semi-hack which at least allows xen://hostname to work. It's not a problem for qemu because these URIs should always contain a path. Nor for test for the same reason. Not sure about OpenVZ.
