NACK.

This patch only fixes the symptom (not the root cause), and only in the
case of starting a domain with an <interface type='hostdev'. It doesn't
fix the second crash described in the BZ when running virsh
nodedev-dumpxml - the code path of that doesn't ever get to
virPCIDeviceAddressIsEqual() (but *does* call the function that actually
has the bug).

The root cause of these crashes was a typo introduced just before the
release of 1.0.4. I found that problem and pushed the correct patch on
April 9:

http://libvirt.org/git/?p=libvirt.git;a=commit;h=9579b6bc209b46a0f079b21455b598c817925b48

(Beyond that, I don't like the idea of ignoring a NULL pointer -
virPCIDeviceAddressIsEqual should always be passed non-NULL pointers,
and its only current caller does guarantee that (except for when it has
a bug). If we want virPCIDeviceAddressIsEqual to do something with NULL
pointers, it should be logging an error and failing, but that would
complicate the interface to the function beyond just returning a
true/false (it would have to be tri-state, and the caller would need to
check all three possibilities). I think in this case it's better for the
caller to make sure the pointers it sends are valid.)
