[libvirt] [PATCH] util: rework error reporting in virGet(User|Group)IDByName



This patch gets rid of the undeterministic error reporting code done on
return values of get(pw|gr)nam_r. With this patch, if the group record
is not returned by the corresponding function this error is not
considered fatal even if errno != 0. The error is logged in such case.
