[libvirt] Release of libvirt-1.2.10



 As planned a new release is out, just in time for the OpenStack Summit.
It is tagged in git and available as signed rpms and tarballs at the
usual place:

  ftp://libvirt.org/libvirt/

 This is a slightly smaler than usual release, around 200 commits,
probably due top the KVM forum last month :-)
Notable improvements pushed for the vbox driver, some changes too
for the libxl one, and a big refectoring of the driver internals
though that should not be user visible. And as usual a large amount of
