Rather than sticking the flag into the domain definition, I'd rather
pass it via the flags argument to
virDomainDeviceDefParse/virDomainNetDefParseXML - that is, most callers
will want:

virDomainDeviceDefParse(..., 0)

but qemuDomainDetachDevice (in qemu_driver.c) will want:

virDomainDeviceDefParse(..., VIR_DOMAIN_PARSE_NO_GENERATE)


That is, it's more than just detaching an interface mac addresses that
has an issue.  It's anywhere that parsing a device XML snippet to be
used to match an existing device that we want to suppress generation of
additional items in the parse (this includes generating a random mac for
an interface, but may include other generated items).  So adding a new
flag that can be used to tell ALL parse routines to avoid generating
extra data is more useful than changing the domain definition to say
whether one piece of information was generated.
