In qemudShutdownVMDaemon(), calling delMacvtapByMACAddress() before
virKillProcess() doesn't work. delMacvtapByMACAddress() tries to be
polite and not delete the macvtap interface if it appears to be owned
by someone else, but in this case it's our own qemu still holding the
tap fd open:

  libvirtd: 16:10:04.836: error : openTap:567 : cannot open macvtap
tap device /dev/tap63: Device or resource busy

When the qemu process does finally stop, the macvtap interface is still around.
