If you were going to do this, having "with" at the end sounds awkward;
it would be better to just make it "couldn't find interface '%s'".

However, it doesn't make sense to make the messages in the driver itself
generic, because they are inside functions that are specific to mac
address / name, so it's appropriate for the error message to be specific.

I think I like Dan's suggestion (3) the best - in virsh, before doing
any lookups just try parsing the string into a mac address (with
virMacAddrParse()) - if virMacAddrParse() is successful, you then only
need to try lookupbymac (and can report "couldn't find interface with
MAC address '%s' if the lookup fails), and if virMacAddrParse fails, you
then only need to try lookupbyname.

Once you've done that, you shouldn't need any changes to the libvirtd
log messages at all.
