Re: [libvirt] [PATCH] build: silence false positive clang report

clang complained that STREQ(group->controllers[i].mountPoint,...)  was
a NULL dereference when i==VIR_CGROUP_CONTROLLER_CPUSET, because it
assumes the worst about virCgroupPathOfController.  Marking the
argument const doesn't yet have an effect, per this clang bug:

So, we use sa_assert, which was designed to shut up false positives
from tools like clang.

* src/util/cgroup.c (virCgroupMakeGroup): Teach clang that there
is no NULL dereference.

I'm including enough context to show the STREQ that clang complained

And yes, I'm plowing through clang reports right now - there were
less than 20, so it seemed worth tackling before 0.8.8.

This one is a one-liner fix (tested by re-running clang and no longer
seeing a false positive, and sa_assert() is a no-op for gcc compilation),
but I'd rather get an ACK before pushing.
