[libvirt] [PATCH]POWER Hypervisor: Fix the segment fault issue for the "list" command

When connect to the remote IBM HMC/IVM server, the remoteNetworkOpen() called
after the phypOpen() in do_open function will re-assign a NULL pointer to the
virConnectPtr conn->networkPrivateData which is allocated in phypOpen(), this
will result in a segment fault issue when execute the following commands,
eg, "virsh# list --all"
