I think we're going to need more than this :(

domain_conf.c uses it to feed this code in virDomainNetFindIdx:

    bool PCIAddrSpecified = virDomainDeviceAddressIsValid(&net->info,


Right now, if you omit an <address> element, it is 0-initialized and the
in-memory structure happens to be pci_0000_00_00_0, but PCIAddrSpecified
is set to false, which then lets us auto-pick an appropriate (non-zero)
address.  If you explicitly specify an all-0 address, you get the same

With your patch, it looks like you want to allow explicit specification
of an all-0 address.  But for that to work, we now need to modify
domain_conf.h (and/or device_conf.h) to ALSO have a bool flag that says
whether an address was specified (since you are allowing explicit
specification of all-0, where we should NOT auto-assign a different
address) or omitted.

NACK to this version; the correct solution is one where an explicit
all-0 address behaves differently than omitting <address>.
