[libvirt] [PATCH] network: increase max number of routes

This fixes the problem reported in:


When checking for a collision of a new libvirt network's subnet with
any existing routes, we read all of /proc/net/route into memory, then
parse all the entries. The function that we use to read this file
requires a "maximum length" parameter, which had previously been set
to 64*1024. As each line in /proc/net/route is 128 bytes, this would
allow for a maximum of 512 entries in the routing table.

This patch increases that number to 128 * 100000, which allows for
100,000 routing table entries. This means that it's possible that 12MB
would be allocated, but that would only happen if there really were
100,000 route table entries on the system, it's only held for a very
short time.

Since there is no method of specifying and unlimited max (and that
would create a potential denial of service anyway) hopefully this
limit is large enough to accomodate everyone.
