[libvirt] [PATCH] storage: kill dead stores



Found by clang.  Clang complained that virStorageBackendProbeTarget
could dereference NULL if backingStoreFormat was NULL, but since all
callers passed a valid pointer, I added attributes instead of null
checks.

* src/storage/storage_backend.c
(virStorageBackendQEMUImgBackingFormat): Kill dead store.
* src/storage/storage_backend_fs.c (virStorageBackendProbeTarget):
Likewise.  Skip null checks, by adding attributes.
---

Thankfully, the null dereference scenario noted by clang was never
triggered in the code, which is good since it was introduced as
part of fixing a CVE.
