Pre-existing, but this is a long...

yet here we want it to be an int.  Why not use virXPathInt() on an int
in the first place, so that we don't risk silent truncation?  In fact,
why even have tmp, when we can:

ret = virXPathInt("string(./miimon/@freq)", ctxt,
                  &def->data.bond.frequency)

in the first place?

As long as we are cleaning up this function, we might as well clean up
the unintentional silent truncation.
