[libvirt] virtlockd max_clients limitation


we recently ran into a problem when trying to start more than 20 guests if 
direct locking with virtlockd was enabled. The error message locked like this:
# start test7
error: Failed to start domain test7
error: Cannot recv data: Connection reset by peer

Our research indicated there is a max_clients parameter set in src/locking/lock_daemon.c which causes the limitation.
Simply increasing this number works as a workaround.

I don't have a deep understanding of the code, so I don't know if there is a 
bug and the connection should be dropped after the lock is set or if 
max_clients really is the way to go. If the latter I guess max_clients should 
be configurable like in virtlockd or at least be higher than 20 :)

Libvirt version 1.1.1
