For CreateXML and DefineXML, virDomainObjListAdd returns @vm w/ 2 refs
and virDomainObjListRemove will end up calling virObjectUnref twice as
part of the virHashRemoveEntry call because virDomainObjListNew set up
virObjectFreeHashData as the API to be called when an object is removed
from the hash table.

So for that case, no virObjectUnref is necessary because by the time we
return @vm could already be free'd, but should have refcnt=0.
