Part of the problem I see here is that we don't initialized the
libvirt logging framework until quite late in startup sequence,
due to the need to the read the config file.

If we added a call to virLogSetFromEnv() right at the start of
libvirtd, then we'd get a basic logging setup activated, and
so can just use  VIR_ERROR everywhere, instead of a mixture
of fprintf(stderr) and VIR_ERROR. The default logging setup
for VIR_ERROR will printf to stderr anyway.

This will mean you can override the logging destination from
environment variables more effectively.
