[libvirt] [PATCH] Make dnsmasq run from libvirtd reading /etc/ethers



The following small patch makes dnsmasq run from libvirtd reading
/etc/ethers and enables static ip address assignment with it.


Libvirtd already supports static ip address assignment by
//ip/dhcp/host element in network xml definition file, however the
number of the assignments looks limited by ARG_MAX or similar parameters
when dnsmasq is exec-ed.

This patch implements a workaround for this issue and the number of
static ip assignments becomes only limited by dnsmasq (I'm not sure the
exact number but it should large enough for most cases, I guess).
