[libvirt] [PATCH 11/17] Fix leak in qemuStringToArgvEnv upon OOM

From: "Daniel P. Berrange" <berrange redhat com>

The 'qemuStringToArgvEnv' method splits up a string of command
line env/args to an 'arglist' array. It then copies env vars
to a 'progenv' array and args to a 'progargv' array. When
copyin the env vars, it NULL-ifies the element in 'arglist'
that is copied.

Upon OOM the 'virStringListFree' is called on progenv and
arglist. Unfortunately, because the elements in 'arglist'
related to env vars have been set to NULL, the call to
virStringListFree(arglist) doesn't free anything, even
though some non-NULL args vars still exist later in the

To fix this leak, stop NULL-ifying the 'arglist' elements,
and change the cleanup code to only free elements in the
'arglist' array, not 'progenv'.
