[libvirt] [PATCH v3] qemu: Forbid <memoryBacking><locked> without <memtune><hard_limit>

In order for memory locking to work, the hard limit on memory
locking (and usage) has to be set appropriately by the user.

The documentation mentions the requirement already: with this
patch, it's going to be enforced by runtime checks as well,
by forbidding a non-compliant guest from being defined as well
as edited and started.

Resolves: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1316774
Changes from [v2]

  * Address review feedback:
    - move the check from BuildCommandLine to Validate.

Changes from [v1]

  * Address review feeback:
    - check in BuildCommandLine rather than in PostParse,
      so that non-compliant guests will merely fail to
      start rather than disappear completely.
