It should work either way.  That variable assignment doesn't actually
matter because of the way bash works.  The higher up function which
calls virsh_migrate function declares $target (correctly) and passes it
in as $1 to virsh_migrate.

Because $target's scope is actually global (declare does not create a
'local' variable; it creates a global one; the 'local' keyword creates a
'local' variable), the fact that there is a syntax error should not
matter in this case.

So, you'll get a weird error if you run this from the console but it
should not affect migration.
