[libvirt] [PATCH] qemuDomainBlockStatsFlags: Guard disk lookup with a domain job



When there are two concurrent threads, we may dereference a NULL
pointer, even though it has been checked before:

1. Thread1: starts executing qemuDomainBlockStatsFlags() with nparams != 0.
            It finds given disk and successfully pass check for disk->info.alias
            not being NULL.
2. Thread2: starts executing qemuDomainDetachDeviceFlags() on the very same
            disk as Thread1 is working on.
3. Thread1: gets to qemuDomainObjBeginJob() where it sets a job on a
            domain.
4. Thread2: also tries to set a job. However, we are not guaranteed which
            thread wins. So assume it's Thread2 who can continue.
5. Thread2: does the actual detach and frees disk->info.alias
6. Thread2: quits the job
7. Thread1: now successfully acquires the job, and accesses a NULL pointer.
