[libvirt] [PATCH] Avoid a libvirtd crash on broken input 523418



  A simple typo in an XML domain file could lead to a crash, because
we called STRPREFIX() on the looked up value without checking it was
non-null. Patch is trivial, and should go in but I wonder if we
shouldn't make those STR macros safer too like turning

#define STRPREFIX(a,b) (strncmp((a),(b),strlen((b))) == 0)

into

#define STRPREFIX(a,b) ((a) && (b) && (strncmp((a),(b),strlen((b))) == 0))

anyway I think we should apply the patch independently, without it
libvirtd crash, with it we get the proper error report:

[root paphio ~]# virsh define RHEL-5.4-64.xml
18:32:21.982: warning : processCallDispatchReply:7570 : Method call
error
error: Failed to define domain from RHEL-5.4-64.xml
error: internal error No <source> 'dev' attribute specified with
<interface type='bridge'/>
