[libvirt] [PATCH 2/2] qemu: Avoid operations on NULL monitor if VM fails early



https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1047659

If a VM dies very early during an attempted connect to the guest agent
while the locks are down the domain monitor object will be freed. The
object is then accessed later as any failure during guest agent startup
isn't considered fatal.

In the current upstream version this doesn't lead to a crash as
virObjectLock called when entering the monitor in
qemuProcessDetectVcpuPIDs checks the pointer before attempting to
dereference (lock) it. The NULL pointer is then caught in the monitor
helper code.

Before the introduction of virObjectLockable - observed on 0.10.2 - the
pointer is locked directly via virMutexLock leading to a crash.

To avoid this problem we need to differentiate between the guest agent
not being present and the VM quitting when the locks were down. The fix
reorganizes the code in qemuConnectAgent to add the check and then adds
special handling to the callers.
