[libvirt] [PATCH] storage: Fix mention of disk pool default



The default disk storage pool type is 'dos', not 'msdos'.

I ran into this doc bug when trying to figure out why a disk storage
pool that I had copied from another machine wouldn't autostart; it
turns out that the old disk used BIOS partitioning (dos), and the new
one uses UEFI (gpt).

I wonder if it would be nicer if a disk pool without a default
partition type supplied by the user could auto-detect the right
format, rather than defaulting to dos, but that's a bigger question
that I won't be tackling, and wouldn't have necessarily helped me
(if the <target> element was already present when I copied the file).
