We can't do that. It would break ABI. Any app that is linking with
libvirt right now expects to see a 32 bytes long string. If we change
that to anything bigger we would overwrite the app's memory. Needless to
say, XDR would be broken too.

This in fact is the only way to fix the issue IMO.

ACKed and pushed.
