I'd originally intended to post the interdiffs from git, but made a
mistake with git reset and ended up with the changes squashed in before
I was able to send the separate patches - all I had left was the output
of diff in a terminal window. Since it was such a minor change (the
change in bridge_driver.c only modifies log message and comment text,
and the change in virsocketaddr.c adds one more clause to an
expression), I figured it could just be visually examined.

Since I no longer have the interdiffs, I'll just repost the entire series.
