[libvirt] [PATCHv3 1/3] util: improve user lookup helper



A future patch needs to look up pw_gid; but it is wasteful
to crawl through getpwuid_r twice for two separate pieces
of information, and annoying to copy that much boilerplate
code for doing the crawl.  The current internal-only
virGetUserEnt is also a rather awkward interface; it's easier
to just design it to let callers request multiple pieces of
data as needed from one traversal.

And while at it, I noticed that virGetXDGDirectory could deref
NULL if the getpwuid_r lookup fails.

* src/util/virutil.c (virGetUserEnt): Alter signature.
(virGetUserDirectory, virGetXDGDirectory, virGetUserName): Adjust
callers.

v3: fold in the changes proposed on-list.

I've gone ahead and pushed this, and the rest of the series, now.

Next, I'm working on backporting to at least v1.0.5-maint and
v0.10.2-maint, since those are active Fedora releases.
