I just moved away the CPU map file. But it appears I have a domain
defined pointing to a non-existent disk image. It seems the problem
shows up when multiple errors are raised when libvirtd is starting up.
It looks like the author of this patch has an invalid group 'tss'
configured somewhere, which triggered the "Failed to parse group 'tss'"
error.
