[libvirt] [PATCH v3 4/4] storage: Disallow usage of the HBA for a fc_host backing



Disallow providing the wwnn/wwpn of the HBA in the adapter XML:

  <adapter type='fc_host' [parent='scsi_hostN'] wwnn='HBA_wwnn'
    wwpn='HBA_wwpn'/>

This should be considered a configuration error since a vHBA
would not be created. In order to use the HBA as the backing the
following XML should be used:

  <adapter type='scsi_host' name='scsi_hostN'/>

This also alters the caller such that the @parent_name param
into checkParent can be NULL so as to confirm that at least
the provided wwnn/wwpn found a vHBA instead of an HBA.
