[libvirt] [PATCH] qemu: fix i6300esb watchdog hotplug on Q35

When commit 361c8dc17 added support for hotplugging the i6300esb
watchdog device (first in libvirt-3.9.0), it accidentally contstructed
the commandline for the device_add command before allocating a PCI
address for the device. With no PCI address specified in the command,
the watchdog would simply be placed at the lowest unused PCI slot.

On a 440fx guest, this doesn't cause a problem, because libvirt's PCI
address allocation algorithm would most likely give the same address
anyway (usually a slot on pci-root), so nobody noticed the omission of
address from the command.

But on a Q35 guest, the lowest unused PCI slot is on pcie-root, which
doesn't support hotplug; libvirt knows enough to assign a PCI address
that is on a pcie-to-pci-bridge (because its slots *do* support
hotplug), but qemu doesn't, so if there is no PCI address in the
command, qemu just tries to plug the new device into pcie-root, and
fails because it doesn't support hotplug, e.g.:

  error: Failed to attach device from watchdog.xml
  error: internal error: unable to execute QEMU command 'device_add':
  Bus 'pcie.0' does not support hotplugging

The solution is simply to build the command string after assigning a
PCI address, not before.
