Hmm, we used todo this, but it screwed up the code coverage reports
for the tests which ran virsh. eg, 1/2 the data got stuffed into
src/libvirt_la-nodeinfo.gcno files and the other 1/2 got stuff into
src/.libs/libvirt_la-nodeinfo.gcno and there didn't appear to be any
way to merge them. Any thoughts on that
