[libvirt] [PATCH] snapshot: ABI stability must include memory sizing

Commit 973fcd8f introduced the ability for qemu to reject snapshot
reversion on an ABI incompatibility; but the very example that was
first proposed on-list[1] as a demonstration of an ABI incompatibility,
namely that of changing the max memory allocation, was not being
checked for, resulting in a cryptic failure when running with larger
max mem than what the snapshot was created with:
error: operation failed: Error -22 while loading VM state

This commit merely protects the three variables within mem that are
referenced by qemu_command.c, rather than all 7 (the other 4 variables
affect cgroup handling, but have no visible effect to the qemu guest).

* src/conf/domain_conf.c (virDomainDefCheckABIStability): Add
memory sizing checks.
