[libvirt] [PATCH v2 0/4] Extra validation for the <sysinfo> section


The <sysinfo> section needs an extra uuid validation check.  The current
check compares the numerical sysinfo/system_uuid with the domain uuid;
however, it's possible that someone added extra hyphens into the sysinfo
uuid which results in the inability to start the domain (at least qemu).
Rather than fail due to improper format, adjust/save to the expected format.

The bug report indicates the 'date' field should at least be syntax checked
based on what's desribed in the SMBIOS spec.  From the spec:

"String number of the BIOS release date. The date string, if supplied, is
in either mm/dd/yy or mm/dd/yyyy format. If the year portion of the string
is two digits, the year is assumed to be 19yy.

NOTE: The mm/dd/yyyy format is required for SMBIOS version 2.3 and later"

v2 -> v1 differences:

 - Moved Sysinfo field validation checks from virDomainDefParseXML() into

 - As long as the virUUIDParse() value matches the domain's UUID field
   save the 'correct' format in the system_uuid field - that is don't
   error out just because of extraneous space or dash in provided UUID.

 - Added tests for date field and uuid comparison parsing errors.

 NOTE: 01 and 02 are unchanged
