If persist_xml != NULL then persistDef is it's parsed version (or NULL)
and we need to free it. Otherwise it's just a copy of another pointer.
In other words, your patch is correct (although checking for persist_xml
An alternative solution would be to make sure we can always free
persistDef by making a copy of vm->newDef rather than copying just the
pointer and free it unconditionally.
Anyway, your patch is good enough. ACK.
I'll push it later.
