[libvirt] [PATCH] portability to non-glibc: don't use realpath(..., NULL)



Using realpath like that is not portable, and providing
a buffer instead of NULL is wasteful and harder to code properly.
Instead, use gnulib's canonicalize_file_name, which does
the same job portably:

Subject: [PATCH] portability to non-glibc: don't use realpath(..., NULL)

it causes a NULL-dereference on some systems like Solaris 10.
* src/node_device/node_device_linux_sysfs.c. Include <stdlib.h>.
(get_sriov_function): Use canonicalize_filen_name, not realpath.
* bootstrap (modules): Add canonicalize-lgpl.
