[libvirt] [PATCH v3] storage: Disallow usage of the HBA for a fc_host backing



Disallow providing the wwnn/wwpn of the HBA in the adapter XML:

  <adapter type='fc_host' [parent='scsi_hostN'] wwnn='HBA_wwnn'
    wwpn='HBA_wwpn'/>

This should be considered a configuration error since a vHBA
would not be created. In order to use the HBA as the backing the
following XML should be used:

  <adapter type='scsi_host' name='scsi_hostN'/>

So add a check prior to the checkParent call to validate that
the provided wwnn/wwpn resolves to a vHBA and not an HBA.

 v2: https://www.redhat.com/archives/libvir-list/2017-July/msg01019.html

 Changes since v2, from review, simplify logic even more.
