Hmm; this patch causes 'make check' to fail qemuxml2argvtest and
nwfilterxml2xmltest, because the default logging (warn and error) is no
longer triggered by logging at level info, so virtTestLogContentAndReset
no longer captures any failures when it was expected to catch a warning.

I'm not sure whether the fix is to revert this patch, or to teach the
testsuite to catch all messages (info included), since that might result
in noise from other tests where info messages were previously undetected.
