[Libguestfs] [PATCH] inspector: --xpath: Copy node to new document (RHBZ#1281577).

'virt-inspector --xpath' can segfault.

When run under valgrind, it shows this error:

==2254== Invalid free() / delete / delete[] / realloc()

The cause appears to be that when copying the matching node(s) found
by the xpath expression, we have to copy them into the new document
(using xmlDocCopyNode instead of xmlCopyNode).

This bug has existed since this functionality was originally added in
commit d1ee71782ace98a11c5aabaf1f9fd5f601e08367.
