Re: [libvirt PATCH] check for NULL before calling g_regex_unref

g_regex_unref reports an error if called with a NULL argument.

We have two cases in the code where we (possibly) call it on a NULL
argument. The interesting one is in virDomainQemuMonitorEventCleanup.

data->regex, which has two problems:

* On the client side, flags is -1 so the comparison is true even if no
 regex was used, reproducible by:
 $ virsh qemu-monitor-event --timeout 1
 which results in an ugly error:
(process:1289846): GLib-CRITICAL **: 14:58:42.631: g_regex_unref: assertion 'regex != NULL' failed
* On the server side, we only create the regex if both the flag and the
 string are present, so it's possible to trigger this message by:
 $ virsh qemu-monitor-event --regex --timeout 1

Use a non-NULL comparison instead of the flag to decide whether we need
to unref the regex.

Any reason why regex_unref does not accept NULLs?  It caught a misuse in the
first case, but the second one could just make the code cleaner.  Maybe we could
create our own auto type over it? =D
