[libvirt] [PATCH v2] qemu driver: use lseek64 for setting position in logfile

  - removed replacements of lseek() to lseek64() from patch

While doing some testing with Qemu and creating huge logfiles I encountered the case where the VM could not start anymore due to the lseek() to the end of the Qemu VM's log file failing. The patch below fixes the problem by replacing the previously used 'int' with 'off_t'.

To reproduce this error, you could do the following:

dd if=/dev/zero of=/var/log/libvirt/qemu/<name of VM>.log bs=1024 count=$((1024*2048))

and you should get an error like this:

error: Failed to start domain <name of VM>
error: Unable to seek to -2147482651 in /var/log/libvirt/qemu/<name of VM>.log: Success
