Re: [libvirt] [PATCH 3/4] util: reset the counters to zero

After freeing the data structures we have to reset the counters to

virDomainNetIPInfoParseXML(...) fails with ret < 0 (this leads to the
first call of 'virNetDevIPInfoClear(&def->guestIP)') and the resulting
call of virDomainNetDefFree(def) in the error path of
virDomainNetDefParseXML() (this leads to the second call of
virNetDevIPInfoClear(&def->guestIP), and finally to the segmentation

ACK, and I take full responsibility for introducing the bug :-/

(This shows the danger of believing that merely moving a chunk of code into a subordinate function that's called in place of the original code won't lead to a regression; previously it wasn't possible to call it twice on the same object, but now it is)
