Smells like a case of mistakenly treating either -1 or INT64_MAX as a
valid value (that integer is 0x1f_ffff_ffff_ffff, which happens to be
UINT64_MAX>>11 or INT64_MAX>>10), rather than recognizing it as meaning
unlimited or undeterminable.  If unlimited is the intended meaning,
virsh can probably be taught to display it differently, perhaps by also
referencing the host's limits.
