[libvirt] [PATCH] Fix potential deadlock when agent is closed

From: "Daniel P. Berrange" <berrange redhat com>

If the qemuAgentClose method is called from a place which holds
the domain lock, it is theoretically possible to get a deadlock
in the agent destroy callback. This has not ben observed, but
the equivalent code in the QEMU monitor destroy callback has seen
a deadlock.

Remove the redundant locking while unrefing the object and the
bogus assignment
