[libvirt] [PATCHv2 1/7] interface: new public API for network config change transactions

From: Michal Privoznik <mprivozn redhat com>

This is the API agreed on in:


(with a slight name change to use "...begin" rather than
"...start"). This implements transactional changes to the host network
config. When a transaction is begun with ncf_change_begin(), all other
netcf APIs will continue to work as they always have, but a snapshot
of the existing config will be taken, allowing reversion (rollback,
using ncf_change_rollback()) to the exact state of config at the time
ncf_change_begin() was called. Alternately, if it's determined that
the new changes are acceptable, ncf_change_commit() can be called,
which will eliminate the snapshot and make the changes permanent.

As a failsafe measure, if neither ncf_change_commit() or
ncf_change_rollback() is called by the next time the system reboots,
the netcf-transaction initscript will be automatically called to
rollback the changes.
