[libvirt] [PATCH 3/5] tests: avoid segfault if json monitor not present

On a machine without json headers, I was seeing random segfaults
from qemumonitorjsontest (about 90% of the runs on my particular
machine).  The segfault was inside virClassIsDerivedFrom, which
points to a case of a race leading to unreferencing a stale
pointer to an object that had already been freed.  I also noticed
that if I got the segfault, I was seeing messages such as:

2013-02-22 16:12:37.504+0000: 19833: error : virNetSocketWriteWire:1361 : Cannot write data: Bad file descriptor

which is also evidence of deferencing a stale pointer.  I traced it
to a race where qemuMonitorTestIO could execute late, after the
main thread had already called qemuMonitorTestFree and called
virNetSocketClose(test->client) but not clearing it out to NULL.
Sure enough, after test->client has been closed, fd is -1, which
causes an attempt to write to the socket to fail, which in turn
triggers the error code of qemuMonitorTestIO that tries to re-close

* tests/qemumonitortestutils.c (qemuMonitorTestIO): Don't attempt
to free client again if test already quit.
