[libvirt] [PATCH] virDomainObjListAddLocked: fix double free

If @vm has flagged as "to be removed" virDomainObjListFindByNameLocked
returns NULL (although the definition actually exists). Therefore, the
possibility exits that "virHashAddEntry" will raise the error
"Duplicate key" => virDomainObjListAddObjLocked fails =>
virDomainObjEndAPI(&vm) is called and this leads to a freeing of @def
since @def is already assigned to vm->def. But actually this leads to
a double free since the common usage pattern is that the caller of
virDomainObjListAdd(Locked) is responsible for freeing @def in case of
an error.

Let's fix this by setting vm->def to NULL in case of an error.
