[libvirt] [PATCH] Fix padding of encrypted data



If we are encoding a block of data that is 16 bytes in length,
we cannot leave it as 16 bytes, we must pad it out to the next
block boundary, 32 bytes. Without this padding, the decoder will
incorrectly treat the last byte of plain text as the padding
length, as it can't distinguish padded from non-padded data.

The problem exhibited itself when using a 16 byte passphrase
for a LUKS volume

  $ virsh secret-set-value 55806c7d-8e93-456f-829b-607d8c198367 \
       $(echo -n 1234567812345678 | base64)
  Secret value set

  $ virsh start demo
  error: Failed to start domain demo
  error: internal error: process exited while connecting to monitor: >>>>>>>>>>Len 16

    keyid=masterKey0,iv=zm7apUB1A6dPcH53VW960Q==,format=base64: \
    Incorrect number of padding bytes (56) found on decrypted data

Notice how the padding '56' corresponds to the ordinal value of
the character '8'.
