[libvirt] [PATCH v2] macvtap: libvirtd forgot macvtap device name during a shutdown/restart cycle



V2:
- removed change from virDomainNetDefFormat. The reported problem also does not occur.

During a shutdown/restart cycle libvirtd forgot the macvtap device name that it had created on behalf of a VM so that a stale macvtap device remained on the host when the VM terminated. Libvirtd has to actively tear down a macvtap device and it uses its name for identifying which device to tear down.

The solution is to not blank out the <target dev='...'/> completely, but only blank it out on VMs that are not active. So, if a VM is active, the device name makes it into the XML and is also being parsed. If a VM is not active, the device name is discarded.
