[libvirt] [PATCH] macvtap: log an error if on failure to connect to netlink socket



A bug in libnl (see https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=677724
and https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=677725) makes it very
easy to create a failure to connect to the netlink socket when trying
to open a macvtap network device ("type='direct'" in domain interface
XML). When that error occurred, there was no log message, leading
virsh (for example) to report "unknown error".

This patch logs a message which will hopefully be more useful. (All
other error exits from the same function were already logging a
message).
