Re: [libvirt] [PATCH 4/4] Add an explicit virNetClientClose method

Since the I/O callback registered against virNetSocket will
hold a reference on the virNetClient, we can't rely on the
virNetClientFree to be able to close the network connection.
The last reference will only go away when the event callback
fires (likely due to EOF from the server).

This is sub-optimal and can potentially cause a leak of the
virNetClient object if the server were to not explicitly
close the socket itself

   object when disconnecting
