I'd actually see more value if qemuxml2argv test supports validating
error messages so that they are not obscured.

The errors should be recorded in a file though so that
VIR_TEST_REGENERATE_OUTPUT=1 can be used to update them without copying
stuff into code.

Additionally, while validating errors we must make sure that the locale
for the errors is set to the default one so that it doesn't break
randomly on certain hosts.
