[virt-tools-list] [virt-manager PATCH 2/2] Update interface's status in widget while opening host details dialog

In the host details dialog, the status of network and storage can be
refreshed automatically, but interface can't. re-open the host details
dialog can't help either. users have to do tab changing or reconnect to
hypervisor in virt-manager to reflect interface's status.

1. launch virt-manager.
2. open host details dialog and click tab 'Network Interfaces', Check
   eth0's state.
3. close host details dialog.
4. set eth0's link to down on host.
5. reopen host details dialog, check eth0's state.
   (the opened tab last time will be showed)

This patch refreshes the status of interface in widget when opening the
host details dialog to reflect the current status of interface.
