This may be caused by libvirtd being compiled with -O2; You want to turn
that off:
1) get libvirt sources, unpack them and cd <unpacked sources>
2) export CFLAGS='-O0'
3) ./autogen --system && make

Now you should have libvirtd in ./daemon/libvirtd; However, this is
libtool wrapper script. So you won't succeed running it directly (gdb
./daemon/libvirtd); I personally use attach: gdb -p $(pgrep libvirtd);
NB, you should shutdown your system libvirtd: service libvirtd shutdown
