Bug Fixes

BZ#1098019
Previously, the virt-who daemon did not report guest attributes to the server, which disabled the virt_guest_limit feature. With this update, virt-who has been modified to correctly report guest attributes. As a result, virt_guest_limit is now supported by virt-who.
BZ#1113938
Prior to this update, every call to Libvirtd.listDomains() function from the /usr/share/virt-who/virt/libvirtd/libvirtd.py script opened a new connection to the libvirtd daemon but did not close it. Consequently, after several iterations, virt-who consumed all connections allowed for any client of libvirtd. With this update, Libvirtd.listDomains() has been modified to properly close the livirtd connections, thus fixing this bug.
