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.

   Looks fine to me now,
