[libvirt] [PATCH] Fix documentation for NIC <model type='...'> selection

This previous message from April contains the patch which added
support for the <model type='...'/> element in NIC definitions.


Unfortunately it looks like the documentation for it was applied to a
generated file so it got lost along the way.  The attached patch adds
documentation in hopefully the right place.
